With heavy hearts we write on this memory wall to let you know we are so sorry for your loss. May we all take a page from her life notebook and learn to spread a little cheer to those in need.

I was just telling the story about Granny and I were shopping one year around Christmas time. The parking lot was packed and we followed a lady to her car for her spot. Well this other car pulled into the spot while we were waiting. I jumped out of the car and knocked on her window and told her to move. Well she did. And I get back into our car and Granny is laughing so hard she can’t even see. It was the funniest thing ever. ❤️😂

I met Jim at Surgical Care Associates 21 years ago. She just returned to work from a bad fall on the ice/snow. She was always determined to live her life to the fullest; to share her love and her talents with all. She was an awesome seamstress. I remember she told me one of the docs brought her a pair of hunting pants he had found on clearance. They were like two sizes too big and she mended them to fit!! What an awesome lady!!! And always with a smile. She never wanted to be paid for her help, but she would take a hug!!
