''We have been missing our sweet wife and momma for so long now, that is not so hard to say goodbye. We are happy that she is in her real home with her Lord and Savior and her momma and daddy.''

The funeral mass will be held at 10:00 am on Monday, September 24 at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church. Fr. John Vaughn will officiate. Burial will be at Resurrection Catholic Cemetery. Visitation will be held on Sunday from 1 – 6 pm (with prayers at 5 pm) and on Monday after 9 am at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory.
