    She was Baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses Jan 13, 1962. She was a woman who knew how to persevere through difficult times with joy.  She loved life, spending time with family and friends, gardening, dancing and teaching others about the Bible.  Down to the end of her life her hope of living on a paradise earth remained strong.  We look forward to the day when she will again ‘climb the hills just as a stag does’.  Until then she will be deeply missed.
