She was very lucky to have found the love of her life at the age of 18. She loved family, and was so proud to become a mom to three beautiful children, who completed her life. She not only loved her own children, she loved all children and enjoyed being silly and playful with kids of all ages.

Along with too many friends to list who will and always had a piece of her heart.
