Our mom was a lover of life.  She was happiest when she was spending time with her family.  Mom was known for her beautiful smile, and her contagious laugh.  She loved her plants, the mountains, flowers, sunshine, and hunting rocks with her family.  She was a collector of jewelry and rare stones. Mom was a wonderful homemaker.  She loved baking bread, canning, and feeding her four boys.  Her dogs were her babies and her greatest companions.

Mom managed the CEU bookstore for almost 20 years, she loved her time there dearly.  She was always found reading a good book, but her favorite was to read out of the scriptures.  Mom had a very close relationship with her Savior, and a strong testimony of the gospel.
