Mom was a kind, humble and very caring person who always put her family first. She worked as a nurse's aide in Eagle Grove at the Rotary Ann nursing home for many years and Kramersmeier Drug. While she spent most of her life in Eagle Grove, Iowa, she also lived in Humboldt, Alaska and Adel, Iowa to be close to her children and grandchildren throughout the years. She would take meals (accustomed to cooking for a large family) to many and assist anyone within the community - ever a caregiver with a BIG heart. Our mom was a strong Christian example and taught her children to love God, work hard, and that honesty is always the best policy. She went straight from death to life eternal wrapped in the arms of the Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. She will be deeply missed and forever loved.
