She was one of the most positive, upbeat people I 've met. Never saw her that I didn't leave and didn't feel like I could do anything, and I was so beautiful. She was an incredible lady, and I will miss her beautiful smile and happy countenance. She radiated love.
- Garth and Robin Stevenson

I will miss that twinkle she had in her eyes every time I talked to her. She always made me feel loved. She always asked about my grandkids and my granddaughter thought of her as another grandma she had. She will be greatly missed.
- DeAnn Rasmussen
