It would be hard to say that Nana lost her battle because she never stopped fighting. She lived many years with her husband and loved him more than he would imagine. Nana stayed vital for those who loved her no matter how sick she was. She sought forgiveness and peace in her last days and told those she loved dearly. Though she's no longer on this earth, she remains with us through the journey of life by our side. Her family grieves for her loss but takes comfort in knowing she's no longer in pain. Nana will be dearly missed and loved.
The funeral service will be held on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, beginning at 10:00 am at McDougal's Caldwell Funeral Chapel, followed by the burial at Safford Cemetery.
