Her memory will be treasured in hearts as a beautiful woman and distinguished lady who adorned herself inwardly with God's grace and spirit.

Through example, she displayed extraordinary courage, faith and love to all she leaves behind. She is missed, but rejoiced for; as she lived and died in the Lord.
