If you knew her then you

knew she was a breath of fresh air, always helping and there for all she knew and those she didn’t. She was a girl scout and day care provider for 16 plus years in Beloit. She loves her husband Wayne, her kids and grandkids with every bone in her body. She loves her church family and loved OSU! Pistols firing my friend! You fought a good fight and I am sure you have heard welcome home my good and faithful servant!

Pace and Norma Richardson; one daughter, Tammi Richardson.
