Our cherished and beloved mother taught us to find pleasure in the little things. Always quick
to smile, her laughter was contagious. She was a devoted mother who raised six children and always
said, “It was a piece of cake”. A talented musician, she so enjoyed singing and playing the piano.
Heartfelt thanks to our Creekstone family, the staff on 3NE at the Jewish Home, and Lifetime
Care Hospice for their compassionate attention to our mother. Special thanks to Ashley and her
sweet son Peter for their delightful weekly visits. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to
