To one of the nicest people I’ve ever known,she always put the needs of others before her own and was quick with a joke when the time was needed. I will always be thankful for allowing me to be part of her family and will look forward to someday seeing her along with Ruth up in heaven. God bless and sorry for your loss Dannie , Jenny, Charlie, Darla Marie and all the grand kids.
