She loved butterflies, anything purple, spending time with family & friends, and especially her Lord. She also loved her hats and had them in every color. She was always remembered by so many as the sweet lady with the matching hats. Her favorite thing to do was spend time with her great grand babies who made their GG smile big with their loving words and special hugs and snuggles. Even those out of state who could not be here to give hugs, drew her pictures and Face Timed with her, making her feel so special. She loved manger scenes and had a very large collection as family & friends enjoyed giving her unusual ones throughout the years. She was very faithful in studying her bible and praying for ALL of her family and friends by name every day. She had a very special calendar made for her every year that was filled with pictures of her loved ones from the previous year. She faithfully sent cards for birthdays, anniversaries and holidays.
She loved her Lord and her eyes & face radiated the glory she saw as she left this world and entered into His presence.
