Tudy’s husband was the love of her life. She loved the outdoors and camping. She loved all her family and grandbabies they were her pride and joy. Tudy was known as “Mena” to her grandchildren. The last thing she always told everyone was that she loved them. She would give up herself to help others. Tudy loved to do laundry. Laundry was her way to contribute to everyday chores. She loved all holidays, Christmas was her favorite. She was a strong woman and a blessing to family. She touched everybody she came across.
Tudy family was her true strength, her heart was so full of love. She always touched people with her love and kindness. Mom’s favorite thing was to spend time with dad and he was her best friend, the true love of her life, he was her boyfriend since 3rd grade. Her life was full of pain and sickness but through it all her love showed through. She was so strong and quitting was never an option. Momma was a true warrior. She had a true faith and trust in the Lord. The love momma and daddy had was a true gift. Momma inspired our lives with her strength, courage and endurance. A true blessing to all who she encountered. Momma enjoyed life.
Tudy’s presence will be greatly missed.
