She is now reunited with her husband (Joe), parents (Ernest and Bridget Tyler) and 8 siblings (Sr. Lydia SOS, Fr. Ernie SJ, Ella, Evelyn, Peter, John, Marion and Billy) who were all waiting for her.

elevated vvm4e From a young age her love of reading made her knowledgeable in many areas. She always said as a child she would read “anything she could get her hands on.”  She continued to love to spend her free time reading and playing euchre. She was also a formidable Jeopardy player and loved a glass or two of good wine.  She believed that joy and love were found in the simplest of things like a perfect flower or the comfort of a hug.  One piece of advice she shared was “Be true to yourself and you will always be happy”.
