Truly a great mother that I never really "knew" who she was inside. She had a hard upbrining and had to be on her own, and the whole time we were growing up, we were taught to take care of things ourself. "Don't ask others and don't just sit there. Get busy and get it done!"

Very little of her side of the family was close to her because that whole generation was gone. Her niece Judy Webb keep in close contact, and since Mom never had a girl, she adopted Judy to take that place I think!

She leaves 3 children, her husband, and numerous grandchildren along with nieces and nephews!

Funeral held at Greenwood Memorial Park & Mortuary in San Diego, CA
Burial also was in Greenwood Memorial Park where she is next to her husband when he dies.
