Human words cannot express the loss of our mom, grandmother, and great grandmother to whom she dedicated her life. Perhaps Holy Scripture had mom in mind in the description of a "Woman of Worth" as illustrated in Proverbs 31:10-31. Although our hearts are heavy and we will miss you beyond words, we draw comfort in the promise of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, "In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you". We look forward to seeing you again in a far better place.
The family wishes to express their gratitude to Optimal Hospice for their care and support for mom in her final days.
Luncheon reception will be held on March 30 at Hodel's (Harvest Room) located at 5917 Knudsen Drive at 11:30am after the graveside service.
