God bless you dear family. You had the most loving and kind mother. She was a blessing to everyone who knew her. I remember her from childhood and she always had a smile and kind word. She always was dressed up with makeup every day. The last time we talked and visited together was at McDonalds. We reminesed, laughed, and talked for a good while. God bless you and give you peace and comfort during this time of great loss. Love, Ann Wills Fisher

Janet and family you all were so blessed to have such a sweet, godly, and loving mom. She made me feel so welcome every time I visited you in your parents home. She was one of the best seamstress I knew. She truly was a proverbs 31 woman. She has a powerful faith in Jesus Christ. I always loved talking to her.
