Her family wishes to share this poem: “God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you and said, “Come to me”. With tearful eyes we watched you as you slowly slipped away, Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands lay at rest. Gone from our sight, but in our hearts you will always stay.” Arrangements were entrusted to VILLAGE FUNERAL HOME–ORTONVILLE 135 South St., Ortonville.
