There are also great granddaughters Rebecca, Tyler, and Jordan Huff as well as many wonderful, loving nephews, nieces, extended family and friends. Bobbie Brooks became a special member of our family as her friend and caregiver.
Yiayia enjoyed such a wonderful life of fun, laughter and love among friends and family. Her warm smile was what everyone first noticed, but that was only the initial hint of her greatness. She had a generous, loving heart usually showing her love through cooking – well known for her sour cream cake and cheese straws.
