She spent a large part of her life in Montana, enjoying places like Glacier Park. She was an amazing mother, the best grandmother and great grandmother, and a great wife. Her family all love her, and miss her dearly. She was loved by everyone who met her, and had a way with making everybody smile. She loved to play games with her family, such as cards and dominoes.
