Wanting to be remembered for being: a mentor & educator to American Baptist youth on the local & national level. Passionate towards patients & peers during her 33 year career as a Med-Surg nurse at University Hospitals Case Medical Campus. A lover of the glories of nature, the mysteries of science, the truth & expressiveness of art, the therapy of gardening, the beauty & insights of the elderly and the renowned Ohio State Buckeyes.
Known for philosophical insights like; "if you're not N2 TRBL you might as well B dead." or "forget praying for patience, its overrated. Pray for wisdom so you can use the little you might know."
She valued and loved her family who gave her a great foundation of unconditional love, plenty of laughter, a strong work ethic and just as important taught her how to play.
She was blessed by the grandest, most lush and colorful "bouquet" of friends who constantly nurtured, supported, challenged, entertained, explored with, spiritually fed her, and ALWAYS welcomed her into their hearts. "God I'll miss playing with each one of you, CAYATP!!!"
