Sorry for the familie's loss. I remember her as my babysitter when I was little. She used to babysit me and my sister Charlene when Mom and Dad had things going on that both would attend. I always had fond memories of her.

Mary & Family, Our deepest sympathy to you and your family. May your memories give you comfort and those that surround you bring you strength and courage during this difficult time. Your Mom was lady that never quit-her goal in life was to work hard and always know that she had done her best. God bless her memory and GOD bless all of you, Don & Michelle Murray
