A loving mother, inspiring teacher and a truthful sharing Friend. A touchstone of security in the hard times and mutual appreciative collaborator in the good times for all of us. A student of Life who always taught by example. Born to be a teacher because she was so interested in learning and she wanted to share. She challenged all of us to think for ourselves and trust ourselves no matter how frightening that can be. And to live our lives fully. She was courageous, truthful and loving. She said without her personal relationship with Jesus, her life in this way could never have been possible. We will miss her but look forward to what comes next.

    Jane and family, I am so sorry on the loss of your mother and grandmother. She was a fine Christian lady and always had a smile for those she would meet. You were so good to her and faithful to visit all the time like you did and care for her needs. She is gone but I know not forgotten as long as our elders that were in Memory Care. Blessings to you
    Donna for all the McDonalds
