She will be missed by all who knew or met her. She had the biggest heart and loved her family. They were her pride and joy. 

There will be a potluck memorial Nov. 26, 2022 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Columbia Falls Senior Citizens Center. All are welcome to come celebrate the life of an amazing woman.
