"Mom had a contagious smile that always shined forth. She always wanted to be where the action was and being the life of the party. Mom always had many friends whom she adored and they adored her. She was a three time cancer survivor who fought the fight and ran the race. She is now in the presence of her savior, Jesus, and is experiencing more freedom than ever before (I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. (II Tim. 4:7)," her family said. "We will miss you mom and grandma. We love you and look forward to seeing you in heaven."
Mrs. Omans was preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth R. Omans; and parents, John and Dorothy Woodroofe.
