Everyone who had the pleasure of meeting her fell in love with her. She quickly became family to all. She was known for her cooking, baking and sewing. She enjoyed making food for everyone and bringing her Pennsylvania-style cooking to the South. She was a woman who would never slow down and was always finding projects to keep her busy. She had a heart of gold and family meant everything to her. She will be greatly missed by all.
Services will be Tuesday, Nov. 30, at 2 p.m. at Memory Chapel Funeral Home in Laurel.
