Her strong faith and devotion to her family and church
community were unwavering- she was an inspiration to all of
us.We were blessed to have Mom in our lives for so long. We
will miss you Mom.....

The family would like to thank Dr. Susan Erasmus for her care

our little Mom. We are forever grateful to them!

    Sorry to hear of your loss. My Dad, Bill Luniw, was good friends with your Dad, Dusty. I know my Dad spent a lot of time over at your Mom and Dad's and appreciated your Mom. Perhaps they're all up to some mischief together again.
