Always a great lady with a ready smile and helping hands, she will be deeply missed by family, friends, and the church community.

A mass and memorial service will be held in her honor at 2 p.m. Saturday, August 31, at the Catholic Parish of St. John the Baptist, Ninth and Boulevard, Edmond..

In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be sent to the Samaritan House or Giving Tree at St. John the Baptist Church in Edmond or a Catholic Charity of your choice.
