A memorial service will be held Sunday at 1:00 pm at Michels-Lundquist Funeral Home, 5228 Trouble Creek Road, New Port Richey. There will also be a memorial service at a later date in Mendon, Ohio. We loved her for her gentleness, her candor, her truth, her calm and reasonable kindness. I can say in one word it was her goodness. I thought of her as a kind Angel. To know that she was a kind soul that we could always rely on, she made this world great, a wife, a grandma and mom. Also step daughters Vanessa and Vonda who along with their children called her grandma.
