She had an easy smile, an enormous humble heart, and a passion for her family. She was prepared, on any given day, to offer something from her kitchen that represented love for the eight children, 20 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren that she cherished. She had a gift for making all feel like they were known individually, and each one was her personal favorite.
