She was the life of the party. She was raised in Arkansas but came to St. Louis in her late teens with her husband Bob East Sr. She had many jobs over the years (waitress, beautician, insurance agent) but was a waitress for most of them. This was her calling as she developed many beautiful friendships with customers, that became life long friends She was a personal beautician to many family and friends. She was very proud of herself when she passed the state test to sell insurance. We were proud of her too. To know mom was to love her. She had an infectious spirit. She threw the best parties. Her back yard was so beautiful and she loved to show it off. She was stylish-beautiful (many people told her how beautiful her hair was). She was loving and kind. She was fun and funny, and maybe inappropriate at times. She never met a stranger. She turned neighbors into family. She taught us about God and Jesus and how to be the hands and feet of Jesus everyday. She taught us empathy and compassion. Her heart and home were always open. She was honest-to a fault at times. She was the epitome of unconditional love. Her children always knew they could come home or just come to her. To us she was everything!
