The family wrote, “She was the definition of cowgirl “tough”. There was nothing she would not do for those who were her true friends.  She had no notion of loving people by halves, it wasn’t in her nature.  She was an honest, tell it to you straight kind of woman.  All the barn kids respected and loved her so dearly.  She will be forever missed by her family and friends.  Her life a blessing and her memories a treasure.”
