Obdulia was a devoted mother and grandmother. Her faith was her anchor throughout life's challenges. She enjoyed being amongst nature and gardening. Most would say she had a green hand, not just a green thumb. She lived in the kitchen as she had a passion for cooking. Her life was her family. She always made people laugh with her unusual and risqué jokes.
She will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. Her legacy will forever live on in our hearts.
