Sunny will  be remembered as a loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She worked for many years beside her husband in the family business. It didn’t need to be a holiday for her to plan a family gathering  that kept us all close to each other. Sunny loved camping and fishing  with her family, taking care of her home, as well as spending time with  her kids, grandkids and loving husband. Sunny was the heart of the family  and will be greatly missed by us all.

A private  family graveside service was held at the Ripon Cemetery on Tuesday, October 27, 2009. In loving memory donations may be sent to Hospice of San Joaquin  3888 Pacific Ave. Stockton, CA 95204.
