I always enjoyed sitting with Sis at horse pulls. She always had us laughing. You never had to wonder what she was thinking. My sincere condolences to her family. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I'm sure her reunion with Doug was glorious. Rest In Peace Sis, you will be missed. ❤️

I always enjoyed the surprising moments the me, my sister, and my mom got to have with Sis. She always made people laugh as well as wonder sometimes. The last time we surprised Sis was when we decided to go get lunch after church at her favorite place to eat (Strawberry Fields). Sis didn't know we were coming to get food until we walked in the door and walked behind her. My sister walked up to her and said hey, you wanna come sit with us. Sis was like I'm waiting for Pastor to show up to eat with me. Well he can join us also. It was a good day. Sis was amazing, loving, and helpful person. She will be greatly missed. Now I know I will have another guardian angel with me. Rest in peace Sis. Love ya. Fly high 😭 💔 🙏

My sincere sympathy to Sis' family on her passing. Sis was "everyone's friend" and I will miss her great laugh, sense of humor, and big heart. We enjoyed many happy times playing bingo and trying our luck on our casino bus trips. Sis was such a great lady and she will be dearly missed by our family.
