She was "Nana" to many people who were fortunate to have known her. Nana always found a way to help others by helping those in need with food, clothing, love and compassion. She was a humble Jefferson Award recipient. Nana was also known for her opinions and she was not shy in sharing them.
A celebration of her life will be held in June so her loving family and friends can help celebrate her amazing life. If you have any stories and/or photos that you would like to share please send to: Cressaphotos@gmail.com
