Journal entry by Heather Goodwin

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that my sister and I have to share the passing of our beautiful mother. We were fortunate enough to be by her side throughout the day allowing her time with her boyfriend Jim and sharing stories about our memories. She passed yesterday afternoon peacefully with my sister and I by her side. She is with our father now and I’m certain will continue to guide us from above. 
Our mother was a powerful force who had the ability to put a positive spin on anything no matter what. She was happy, independent, fun loving and gave her entire life to her children and others often at the risk of neglecting herself. She was selfless, kind and one of the strongest women I have ever known. I can only hope to be 1/2 the woman she was, our lives and hearts will never be the same. Thank you all for your prayers and love, they were not in vain, she passed knowing how much love surrounded her.
She will be cremated but due to Covid no other arrangements will be made at this time. We will keep this page open so please add any photographs or stories you would like to share in her memory, we would love to hear them!
I sincerely thank you all for your support during this difficult time. 🙏❤️
