She was known best by the name, Mom or Nana to so many children, both hers and those she chose in her life, and loved every single one who came into her life. She was one of the strongest, most courageous and beautifully stubborn women any of us has ever known, and she passed down her strength to all who knew her. Of pioneer stock, Mom taught us what it meant to persevere and to make so much even when we had so little. She is already deeply missed by so many. We thank you all for being a part of her life and loving her.
