She adored her siblings, Mary, Florence, Jim, John, Margaret and Tommy and they adored her. During her childhood they moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, where she has always called "home". A gifted, creative, and outgoing person she filled our home with homemade forts, neighborhood carnivals, practical jokes, heart shape pancakes, unwavering faith, and daily child-like surprises. Our home was filled with children, animals, and endless fun-filled activities. She made every day beautiful. Heaven became a brighter, more joyful place when she arrived. If you want to honor her legacy, simply brighten someone's day with a "hello", a huge smile or a joyful "God Be with you"!
