She was a woman of faith and cherished all the simple things life offered. She enjoyed cooking, sewing, shell hunting at the beach, and spending time with loved ones. Family gatherings were always full of stories and plenty of laughter and love. She touched the lives of many with her generous spirit, compassion, and selflessness. Anyone who met her, loved her. She always had a way of making you feel loved and worthwhile. There was always magic in her touch and sunshine in her smile. She will be dearly missed by all. She will forever be our steel magnolia.
