She lived her life loving her family. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy. She took great pleasure in growing her flowers, once owning her own flower shop in Seadrift. This year, knowing she couldn't’t get outside to plant her flowers, she started growing them in the house so she could enjoy the pleasure they provided her. She loved to go gambling with her family and play the slot machines and also play her lottery tickets. She was an avid card player, loved to play Hand & Foot Canasta with her friends.
She is survived by her sons Raymond Jr, (Denise); Marcus (Jackie), daughters April Townsend (Keith) and Pamela Mills (Hardy); grandchildren: Christy Bryant (Robert); Ashley Waghorne (Josh); Hunter Leita (Erin); Fisher Leita (Fiancé Kaylea Orsak); Miles Mills (Fiancé Kaitlin Pokluda) and Stormy Mills; great grandchildren: Aidan Bryant; Lily, Dusty, and Felicity Waghorne; Luke & Piper Leita; step grandchildren: Courtney Rohrer (Mikey), JW and Lisa Mills; Jessica, Samantha, and Kristi Townsend; step great grandsons Cory & Matthew Bryant and step granddaughter Magnolia Rohrer; sisters Lorene Stokes (Jimmy) and Linda Lala (Dennis), and many nieces and nephews.
