Auntie was one of the most loving, giving and caring person I know. She always had a kind word for everyone she met. I loved listening to her stories about how her and uncle Dale met and all the stories of their life. One of my first memories of auntie was a trip that my family made to the farm. I walked out of the kitchen door just has auntie was ringing a chicken neck and than at dinner asking if that was the same chicken. Love to everyone our family has lost two wonderful women
