Mom will be missed greatly. She was a wonderful mother, wife, sister, and friend and loved life to the fullest. Her days as shop owner of her collectable shop (Lucille's Hidden Treasures) in Winchester Bay, Oregon was among her most exciting adventures. It was a very sad day for the family when mom's dementia got worse and we had to move her out of the house (she was living with Eric and me) and into a Memory Care facility. It was just within 5 minutes from Karen and my house which was great as we visited with her almost every day. She loved visiting with others there and made alot of friends. The Resident Aides loved her and called her "hugs" the best.
Mom's body was giving out and in December we knew it would be time. We were all blessed that she was with us through the holidays and that the family was with her.
