"Her battle with Kidney disease took its toll on her body. In January of 2018 she began dialysis treatments three times weekly. Our Mom was tired, the many trips to the hospital had worn her out, and on February 8th she took her last treatment. For 15 days she visited with family and friends, and she left us on the 16th morning. She will be greatly missed, but we know she is with our loved ones in heaven. We love you Mom & Grandma, Your Family."
