We are very fortunate as a family to have had our mother with us for 86 years, we have so many memories of being together as a family. Our yearly tradition of Thanksgiving at the cabin in the woods was always awesome. She slipped away to heaven last night to join her mother, father, sister and daughter. Though we grieve losing her in this world, we know that she is in a far better place. Due to Covid restrictions, we will celebrate her life when it is safe to do so.
