She worked for many years for Bangor Hydro. Mom lived her life for her family and loved having us all together for any occasion, but especially for the holidays. She was a very good cook and we continue to use hers and Dad's recipes even today. She was our guiding light, our caregiver, our constant supporter, and the best worrier you could ever meet! Mom, words cannot express how deeply loved and missed you are; thank you for being ours.
