Farewell Mary Ellen T

She was laid to rest next to her husband in the Mausoleum across the street this morning. 91 one years young and so full of peace, joy, and gratitude that it was a pleasure to be around her.

Her family is close and they were very much guided by her loving spirit. We shall miss her presence but not be sorrowful for she is seeing what was once lived by faith.

He high tech kids scanned a bunch of photos of her various stages and celebrations of life and, as her daughter stated, her struggle to be lean and not fluffy. Though fluffy won, as it does with us all, you could see her inner strength and beauty all through her life, including getting a degree in nursing in her fifties, and changing careers from homemaker to nurse.
