Mom was always interested in what we all were doing in our lives.

She loved everyone and everyone loved her. Mom always had a smile on her face.

She enjoyed so much our family times we had with her. Mom enjoyed baking and made delicious banana nut bread and her traditional bunny cakes for all our family and her friends.

Mom always made the best Thanksgiving pies and she loved to do crafts. Crocheting was her favorite and she made many doilies, tea towels and afghans for all her children and grandchildren. Her embroidery work was exquisite. Mom also made baby booties for newborns in her ward and embroidered aprons for the missionaries and crocheted scarf's for the homeless.

Mom made our costumes for dance and dresses for her girls.

Mom was a homemaker and sometimes worked outside her home. Her favorite job was The Neighborhood House where see did secretary work.

Mom loved playing card games and was very competitive and was very strict with the rules.

Mom loved watching the Jazz, especially when Karl Malone and John Stockton played. She was a real Jazz fan!

Mom loved music.  Her favorites were Elvis and Josh Groban.

Mom loved traveling to Texas, Washington, Hawaii, and California to visit her family.

Mom joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when she was 15 years old. She held many callings in the church. Mom's favorite was being a visiting teacher and serving the Lord and her sisters she visited.

Mom has had a love of family history and was very devoted in doing Temple work.

She lived by her faith and loved the Lord and showed throughout her life a great example of compassionate service.

Mom's family was her everything. She is greatly loved and will be greatly missed.

In January, 2023, Susan and Mary Ann started a Bible study with our family on Zoom. We studied the book of John. Mom's favorite scripture was John 3:16.

Hallelujah Mother!!! Your earthly mission is completed with honors.
