. The battle is over-the fight is done. She was strong till the end, but cancer had won. Along the way many great memories were made to cherish. She will live forever in our hearts. Tending her flowers, yelling BINGO, looking for the unique GW original or shopping at Meijer brought her great happiness. Another joy was her family-from her grown children and grandchildren to her great-granddaughters to her canine companions, Cee Cee and Boogger. She will be greatly missed!
