I have such great memories of when I would go to the Complex and she would greet me as I walked in. I would spend most of my time visiting with her and catching up on eachother's news. She was my favorite employee at the Tribe while she was there snd I knew she loved her job and her people. She will be greatly missed but she lived a long happy life with lots of family who loved her. I know Grandma Cherry is waiting for her arrival in paradise! ??
