She is also survived by her many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
After Gerry’s death, she decided to sell her home and move to an apartment at Casa de Modesto. It turned out to be a very good decision for her. She enjoyed it immensely and met a nice gentleman. They did some traveling together and enjoyed each other’s company until Russ’s passing.
The family is very grateful to the Community Hospice nurses who took such excellent care of our mother. They are angels and we will forever be thankful for their loving care.
