We were so blessed to have had her this long. She was a wonderful woman and an amazing Mom. If there was something we needed she was there.  She enjoyed listening to music, visiting with family and sitting on the porch in the sun swinging and singing to Merle Haggard, George Strait and many other great artists. Mom worked many years at the mall for Village Book and Hallmark and Tinnin Enterprise on Broadway Ave.  She will be greatly missed by all but never forgotten. She was surrounded by family at the time of passing.
