Qui moved to this area in August of 2004 from San Diego, California. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who truly loved her family and others. She had a passion for gardening and landscaping. Her husband Edgar said she just couldn't stand still - she had to be doing something, whether it was painting, cleaning the house or working outside, but that's what kept her going. She was the type of person who would go the extra mile in giving of herself to other people, reflecting the light of Christ to others.
