My aunt Lib had a contagious smile and laughter that could brighten any room. I will always remember her as a hard working lady with a big personality that consistly displayed love, commitment, and dedication to her husband, children, and grandchildren. Not many people could cook like my aunt Lib. I always looked forward to family gathering's or holidays growing up, when I could load up on her chicken & dumplins and/or Thanksgiving dressing. Her passing will create a huge void for everyone that knew and loved her.
