She was found in her garden laying down not breathing. Her room mate thought she was taking a little to long to come back in from doing her chores and so she went out to check up on mom. She found her on the ground not breathing, and she called the police who arrived shortly thereafter. Her roommate then started calling all of the family members to let each person know that their mom had passed away.
My younger sister Jennete and the oldest son John were there at mom's side in the hospital.
I (John) arrived first at the hospital and then they were just taking out the needles (IV) and I asked that they take out the tube from her mouth.
The hospital people were very friendly and caring about what had happened and were willing to get us anything within reason that they could.
No one of really wanted anything we just waited to see if other family members were going to come.
Moms Bishop was there and a lady that mom gets goat milk from all the time came as well with one of her daughters.
Moms friend had lots of support from family that came to her house as well as police and her church members who came to visit and comfort her.
The police that came to my moms house is a member at our Church in Goshen. He called me and asked about information about my moms health before she died.
Mom said that she had worked out in the yard and over did it. She was feeling very sore and was not feeling very good. I visited her 2 days before she died and was able to give her a hug and talked to her for a little while before going to work. That was that last time I saw mom alive.
The next day she went to her daughters house to decorate Christmas gingerbread houses. She was not feeling very well afterwards. She had mentioned that she did not know if she could make it over to my sister's house to work with her grandchildren on building gingerbread houses. But she showed up anyway and I am sure she enjoyed her time she spent with her kids and grandchildren.
Mom always cared more about her kids than she did about herself and was always good at hiding if she felt bad. She mostly expressed how thankful she was and always showed her love to her children and those around her.
