She especially loved teaching the 3 year old class (Sunbeams) in the primary. She was a true example of service. She especially loved her service to her sweet husband through the years. Her great faith in Jesus Christ was an example to all her family. The thing that brought her the most joy was her family. She showed the greatest love to her three children. She taught them the values that were important to her and always put their needs above her own. There was never a day that would go by that she wouldn't reach out to each of her children just to make sure that they were happy and OK.
