Her last employer was Walmart in La Plata where she had to resign due to illness. She worked for them about 10 years.
Squeaky was taken away from us on Christmas day, which is the day that the Lord was made; A day that is already memorable which now makes it even more of a joyful day to remember because she is now with the lord whom she loved.
