They will miss her big smile, bigger laugh and stern, loving advice to "Do Better and Love One Another". She loved family gatherings, fishing, reading her Bible and listening to Gospel music. She leaves to carry her legacy: four children; Lydia Saez, Jessica Ann Tucker, Joseph Saez (Angela) of Cumberland County and Freddie Tucker (Vanessa) of Burlington County; and her most beloved grandchildren and great grandchildren.
