She was a homemaker, mother, daughter and friend to all. She always had a helping hand to help those around her even the one's she didn't know. She was the light of her daughter's and grandson life. Her smile & laughter will be genuinely missed.

  Her love of life, her ray of sunshine will always be missed but forever treasured in our hearts. Please join us in celebrating her life. Share some of your favorite memories or moments by writing them in your cards for her family to create a memory book.

  In lieu of flowers memorials are being accepted for a Burial fund. This has been set up at TCF Bank on Broad Street under Edith Shaw.
