We brought mom back to Ohio from Arizona to help care for her. It was wonderful to have her here and to be together again once more. She was a strong woman and forever young, never giving up on life. She was determined to be independent and to care for herself to the very end. Living in Arizona, she had diligently cared for her late husband, Marion, who suffered more than 5 years with Alzheimer’s disease. Mom never gave up on her husband until physically she could no longer care for him. Mom was ninety-one when Marion passed away. He passed away at the beginning of the Covid pandemic. Not wanting to expose mom to the virus, we elected to move her into a group home in Peoria, AZ. Even though we knew she loved Arizona; 1-1/2 years later we decided it was time to bring mom to Ohio.
On her last birthday, turning ninety-three, we were able to celebrate as a family one of her favorite meals, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and homemade strawberry pie! Mom, time went too fast upon your return to Ohio. We surely will miss you, but we know you are now sitting at the feet of Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 4:14: For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep with Him.
