Though Addie lived alone most of her life, she had many good friends and was loved by everyone. Her love of God and her interest in the Bible led her to travel to the Holy Land. She was generous to anyone in need though she rarely spent on herself. She loved to read, to ride her bike, and to take walks on the boardwalk at Virginia Beach. She had a great sense of humor and never missed an opportunity to make others laugh. She was adored by her caregivers including Jeannie Chapman, Heather McQueen and the many wonderful folks at Oakmont along with Caris Healthcare who treated her with such loving respect. Her family wishes to express their deep appreciation for the quality care and love she received from these important people.
