Surilda was always the life of the party, a mother to many, and she never met a stranger. She was always laughing, dancing, and listening to music. She liked playing cards and knew how to have a good time. Surilda was sassy and always had a snappy answer for everything. She enjoyed getting dressed up, always had lipstick on even around the house, and her makeup was always done. She was a great communicator, a hard worker, and she always expected others to work just as hard. She had a never give up mentality and believed in the phrase “The worst thing they can tell you is no”. Surilda was many things, but above all else she was a child of God. She would go out of her way to help anyone who needed it. To her family and many others around her she was the total package and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
