She touched so many lives with her genuine smile and laughter. She loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren; they brought her so much joy. She worked many years in the restaurant business and loved visiting with people. She was a Vikings fan, liked to camp and fish at the river with her son Robert. She went to many music concerts; Neil Diamond was her favorite. She will be greatly missed by all.
