Mom is also survived by six beautiful granddaughters, five great grandchildren and many relatives on the Porayko side. Mom’s life was rich in love, family, friends,adventures, activities and interests. Her’s was a life well lived. The family wishes to gratefully acknowledge the commitment and caring of both Dr. D.Griswald and Dr.D.Graham and also the amazing staff of Cottonwoods Pathways-A and Unit D. Many thanks also to First United for the prayers and visits, Bill and Cindy, Franki, Florence, Kathy, Keri, Tracey, Wendy and the many other wonderful people in mom’s life.
