It was rare that her lap would not have any one of them sitting on it or next to it. She loved Jesus and would speak of Him often. She enjoyed her dogs and cats, traveling, shopping (QVC has lost a major customer), collecting dolls and glass chickens, and watching old movies. She was much more than what she enjoyed doing. She was a caring, kind and loving person with never a negative word to say about anyone. She saw the good in others. A piece of all of us was taken the day she was called home. Jesus has gained a beautiful soul. Her family will receive relatives and friends in The Wallingford Funeral Home, 809 N. Main St. Ext., Friday, October 1st, from 10 to 11 am. A funeral service will follow in the funeral home at 11 am. Interment will be in Walnut Grove Cemetery in Meriden. www.wallingfordfh.com
