Born into a hard-working family in Brownsville, TX she loved to read the Bible. She also loved to sing, cook, sew, knit, crochet, and to work in her garden. She was very funny and loved to laugh. For many years she worked as a Volunteer at St Catherine’s Hospital as a Pink Lady. She had the biggest heart and cared deeply for others. Full of pure love and humbleness, her faith in Christ was never ending. Her greatest enjoyment in life was her family and relationship with God. Everyone she knew was inspired by her faith, her loving and gentle spirit. We were all blessed to have her faith shine on all of us. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends and all who were privileged to meet her. To share an online condolence, logon to www.fifefuneralhome.com
