Sis was a wonderful mother and homemaker! She loved reading, puzzles and many that knew her remember her awesome cinnamon rolls. She never graduated high school, but after her children were grown, she went back and was very proud to get her GED.
The family would like to thank the staff of National Church Residences for their loving care, compassion and dignity they gave her.
