Unfortunately a ton of medical bills and other debts were left behind. We don't have much family left to help, and final arrangements were not planned for. We want to be able to host a proper memorial service so that we can all come together and celebrate what an incredible woman she was. She gave so much to her family, friends, and community and was always looking for any way to help those who needed it.
Despite pain and difficulty, she fought for years to stay here with all of her family and friends. She loved BIG, and over the past few years she LIVED BIG. She embraced the most beautiful, adventurous side of herself and was constantly looking for news ways to expand her horizons. She went skydiving, raced down ziplines, flew through the sky in a hot air balloon, rode jet skis, and so so much more.
She went back to school to finish her college degree, determined to become a substance abuse and recovery counselor. She wanted to commit her life and her story to helping others heal from situations which she herself fought so hard.
Her support community was her happiness and her drive along with her 3 children, her sister, and her granddaughter. Thank you everyone for all the strength you lent which empowered her to charge forward with all the passion and warmth which she had in abundance.
We are planning her service for the next week, details to follow. Additional funds will go to help support drug abuse prevention and recovery programs. It was something that she dedicated all of herself to. Her huge heart, constant laughter, passion, and ability to help others heal and recover are some of the things we're going to miss the most.
Thank you in advance for all of your help
