Camping, traveling, crafting and spending quality time with her 7 grandchildren, Kelley, Jesse, Taylor, Lorrie, Dillon, Karson and Mattie and two great grandchildren Caroline Yiannopoulos and Brooklyn Laird, who all were the things she invested her free time. Her love for her Lord, family, church, work, and students was beyond measure. Her joy came from giving her best effort in everything that she was involved. Excellence and always doing the right thing mattered so very much to her.

She will be remembered and treasured as a devoted wife, loving mother and grandmother, loyal friend, and caring teacher.
