She lived a full and adventurous life with her husband William C Bloom of 63 years and they both retired to Hughes Springs,TX. She loved nothing more than to have a visit from family or work in her amazing garden. She enjoyed sharing things she loved with her grandkids from the jitterbug and crocheting to healthy lifestyles, and even tips on gardening. If you ever came across her path, you knew how much she loved to talk to others. She loved people and loved to brag on her family. She enjoyed her grandkids and great grandkids to the fullest, and had a green thumb that rivaled none. 
She is preceded in death by her son, Billy Bloom, sister, Robbie Brewer, and her parents John Brasher and Bennie Mae Rankin whom she loved dearly.
She is survived by her husband, Bill Bloom of Hughes Springs, Texas; two daughters, Laura Richardson and husband Mike, Kim Massey and husband Trey of Hughes Springs, Texas;
