She was a graduate of St. Joseph Academy. She was a homemaker for many years and a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and aunt. She was a lifetime parishoner of St. Alphonsus and Blessed Trinity Catholic Churches. She will be greatly missed by many and Belle Isle will not be the same without her.
The family would like to issue a âthank youã to all medical staff who cared for her and a special thanks to her nurse aide, Alberta Banks, who was with her when she passed. We also would like to thank Ace and Linda for opening their home to her for the last year and Linda for caring for her.
