Mom was a feisty Irish angel with a love for all things Irish. She was an advocate of women's equality long before it was popular and passed this onto her children. By her example, her daughters, learned to be strong women and her sons were taught how women should be treated. She was a true optimist, she not only looked at the glass half full, but over flowing with endless possibilities and laughter. The world is less vibrant and creative without her in it. Mom was able to make everyone she met feel unique and special.
If you see a rainbows in the sky, it may be her painting in heaven. God bless you Mom, as God has blessed us with you.
The family wishes to thank Angela's Hospice especially Keith Frania, and our night time angel, Diane. Donations to Pulmonary Fibrosis and Alzheimer's Association.
