If there was ever a book written about her life, everything she's seen, everything she’s been through, all her adventures in life, I guarantee you it would be the greatest book ever written. Romance, adventure, tragedy, drama, broken hearts, lost and found love, comedy, suspense, deception, thriller, mystery and heartwarming moments. Full of car chases, fist fights ,family drama, adventures, compassion, love and living life all over this country. West coast, East Coast and everywhere in between, you name it, she lived it. She was a truck driver, painter, chauffeur, waitress, babysitter, caretaker, loved dancing, fishing, country music, and writing and singing songs. She was a storyteller, Gypsy and so much more. Pretty amazing woman, one tough woman, one loving woman.
A mom, grandma and great grandma, amazing friend, sister, daughter and aunt. She would keep you on your toes, make you laugh, make you cry, drive you crazy and love you like no other could. She was a one of a kind woman with one heck of a sense of humor. There would be no way you would ever forget her once you truly met her. She could out talk you, out drink you and out love you. She loved Pepsi-Cola and absolutely without a doubt loved her family.
