"Our mother was a celebration of life in and of itself. She loved to help people, no matter who they were. She always would receive the best employee anywhere she worked. She was a loving, outgoing and tenacious woman of God. A true evangelist and gladiator for Christ. She was loved by family and friends. She never met anyone that she wouldn't tell of Jesus' unfailing love. She was a woman of true faith and had a desire to help anyone and everyone she met. In her years of being a CNA she brought life to those around her young and old," her family said.
