      She was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who gave her all in everything she did.

      Her chicken and noodles were always expected at family gatherings because everyone loved them.

      Fishing, gardening, and sewing were things she enjoyed doing.  She loved spending time with her grandkids and great grandkids. 

      She was preceded in death by her mother, father, a sister Christine Eaden, her brother, Buddy Strange and granddaughter, Terri Jo Bellis.

      Mama’s middle name was Pearl and rightly so because she was a jewel to us all.
