She was a great person, loving, caring always put others before herself. If you ever needed anything, she would find a way to get it to make someone smile she did not let her health issues put her down. Anytime anyone need a babysitter she always said yes, she loved everyone she never had a favorite. She dedicated most of her life to work and school she was a teacher to those who needed the extra attention and help and when she was not helping others, she would be reading her books she loved books she had her own little collection of books and movies. She loved spending time with her family always was a peace maker. She was one who we could go to for advice or a shoulder to cry on she was not ever one to show when she needed help, she was very hardheaded, but it would not be her if she wasn’t, she was very loved and adored.
