She was the first born of 15 brothers and sisters. She was a hardworking, organized, caring, devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was very religious and dedicated to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Sadness isn’t an option – work out your stress or aggressions, clean and keep busy.
A very beautiful woman – let us celebrate her life! Stay strong and positive so you may accomplish all in life for there will be many challenges in life that you will conquer.
