My aunt Sissy was the kindest and sweetest person. She went out of her way to make everyone she knew comfortable. She was always a joy to talk to and I will miss her deeply. Unfortunately I did not have the opportunity to see her as often as I wanted to but she will be forever missed.

Every once in a while there comes into your life someone who captures your heart for reasons unexplainable in words, my Aunt Sissy captured my heart.  Over the years time and location prevented us from seeing each other but that did not dim my love for my Aunt Sissy. She was genuine, plan spoken, and absolutely to a fault loyal and honorable to all whom she loved. I will miss her while keeping my memories safely tucked in my heart. I love you Aunt Sissy, Linda

She was the most wonderful woman to all who knew here while here on Earth. Now she is an angel in heaven watching over all of us with a smile. She is the best mother there has ever been. We will miss you so much. We love you with all our heart. Bruce & Joanne
