She was a woman with a big heart and always put others before herself. As life went on she acquired additional children that fell in love with her at first meet and from that point on her extended family grew. She was always called mom, grandma or meme. Her biggest dream was that all her children would be born healthy and taller than she was (4'8 1/2"). She enjoyed all kinds of music, singing and playing the piano.
