Rufina was a hard-working and loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother who loved to cook and take her chance at luck playing the lottery. Her work ethic as impeccable as was her drive to be the best mother, grandmother, and great grandmother anyone could wish for. The holidays were her favorite time of the year as she enjoyed bringing her family together to enjoy her cooking, listening to nostalgic music, and sharing lots of laughter. She will be dearly missed by everyone whose lives she touched. To send an online condolence, logon to: www.fifefuneralhome.com
