She worked in the dental field all her life. She was a devoted wife, mother and a loving dear friend to all who knew her. Some of the happiest moments of her life was being a Pio-Mom, and watching her son play football under the Friday Night Lights, while Dree cheered the Pioneers on to victory.

Her family would like to thank the many family and friends that gave their continuous love and support during our time of need. She will be sadly missed and while she departed this world too soon, she will always be a part of our lives and in our hearts.
