She was a magnet that drew everyone to her. When she loved you, it was an unconditional love. As much love as she had in her heart for everyone else, the love she shared with her husband Vincent for more than 56 years, sets the standard for all other loves. She was the family photographer always with a camera in her hands capturing the family memories. She will always be remembered, loved, and cherished for her infectious laughter and smile.
