Oenone was always a working woman, but being an extraordinary cook blessed with exceptional organizational skills, also kept an immaculate home. Gifted with immense grace, compassion and hospitality, she constantly served her family and her community, and sought always to care for others. Oenone leaves a heritage of strength through perseverance and determination through the power of her Lord and Savior. She was deeply loved by all.
