Praying the beautiful memories of the unforgettable lady be the strength to help you through the tough days ahead. When hearing the term spitfire to describe her would be correct. But a very loving and caring lady as well. So very sorry for your loss.

This amazing woman is now an Angel in Heaven, dancing on the streets of Gold with Jesus by her side. No more tears or pain will ever plague her tiny body again. She will be our Guardian Angel…..Until we meet again Etta Lou! I love you!!
