Jappy was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She was a mom to so many and welcomed anyone to her home. Jappy taught her family love, unity, and independence. She loved to laugh, listen to music, dance, play cards and just have a good time! Family was most important, although, “Keeping up With the Kardashians” is a close second. Jappy was a cancer survivor and pushed through many other health issues. She fought and held on as long as she could for the love of her family. Jappy’s family was her world, and she will be truly missed by all.
