She later moved to Frederick, MD to care for her grandchildren for the past 19 yrs. She planned to move with the family to South Carolina. 

 

She loved spending time with her beloved husband, Cary.  Her favorite things were family, friends, pizza parties, and cook-outs. She loved giving the kids cookies, candy and snack bags. She was adored by many for her kind and generous spirit. She brought joy to others with her caring demeaner, beautiful smile, and funny antics. She had a strong faith in God that was evident by her serving heart. She touched many lives and her memory will live on in our hearts.
