She was baptized in July and recently hosted her first small group meeting in her home. She was a life member of the Bush School PTA, and was a scout leader. Through her work, she met many people that she did not consider patients, but friends. She enjoyed making crafts and the best chocolate chip cookies to share and brighten their day. She always encouraged others by sending a card or a note, even though she was not always feeling well herself. She was loved by everyone. Surviving are three daughters: Justine A.
