Mom had many passions over the years including a tropical fish shop, ceramic shop and most recently an embroidery business. She shared her love of creativity, her humor, and her passion in every piece she created. She passed on her passions and creativity to her children in many ways including her beautiful singing voice, which was passed on to her daughter Karen and granddaughter Summer. Mom cared for every person she met and showed compassion and empathy and taught us to do the same. She loved us fiercely and never let us forget how much, and she taught us to love unconditionally and to forgive often. She will live on in our hearts and memories forever, with all of the values she taught us.
A service to honor her will be held at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at Staples Funeral Home, 53 Brunswick Ave., Gardiner followed by a celebration of her life at her daughter’s home in Pittston.
Arrangements are entrusted with Staples Funeral Home and Cremation Care, 53 Brunswick Ave., Gardiner. Condolences, memories, and photos may be shared with the family on the obituary page of the Staples Funeral Home website, staplesfuneralhome.com.
