My Mom,  She was a person who never had a problem with anyone. She saw the good in all people. She was very strong minded and just glad to be here on this earth. She loved her daughter, grandchildren and two great-grandchildren with all of her heart. We didn't want for anything, but she did this all alone. So God had to be with her all of the time. It is a real great loss to us but God needs her now. So when you look at the stars at night, I am sure my Mom will be one of the them. How do you replace and angel of God?

At her request she will be cremated. Wilhelm-Eakin Funeral Home, P.A., Lonaconing assisted the family.
