She loved listening to music, singing &ldquo;Just let the Sun Shine In or This little light of Mine&rdquo; to her grandchildren, playing the auto harp and guitar with her family. She was a beautiful woman both inside and out and always wanted to have deep conversations with family and friends &ldquo;heart to hearts&rdquo;. She was loved by all and will be sadly missed.
