Lifelong friendships were made as she was a devoted friend to many in both communities. A cherished light has passed from the world with her death. Her quick wit, sincerity and kindness will be missed by all.
We would like to thank the staff at Cape Coral Hope Hospice for the impeccable care and constant support shown to our family.
A celebration of life private service will be held at a later date. Friends may sign the guest book at www.horizonfunerals.com
