She loved the work in Primary, Young Women’s and Relief Society. As described by her children, she was a loving mother and grandmother. If you needed to talk, Mom was a great listener. Mom was a great cook, had a great sense of humor, and loved everyone, especially little children and music. Mom was faithful and compassionate, and loved the gospel. We remember Mom saying, “I’ll be good, if you’ll be good.” Mom loved chocolate and always had an abundance to share….
