Mom, grandma and dear friend. We will miss you but we will keep you in our hearts. You showed us how to love and because of your unconditional love, you were always there when we needed you. You fought a valiant challenging fight with dementia but you never lost your sense of humor. We are so proud of you. Mom now you will be at peace. You are with Daddy and we will take strength from that love forever.Service will held at Ferguson Funeral Home in Chickasha on September 29th at 1 pm.
