She preferred Eloise rather than Wilma and loved to be outside doing gardening. She loved the Lord and served Him faithfully. She was a chocoholic, especially M&M's plain and anything with chocolate and caramel. She was a quiet-spoken woman, devoted mother and wife and loving grandmother. She was so loved by all who met her and she will be missed.
