She loved flowers of all kinds and flower gardening. Her family will miss her yellow cake, whipped mashed potatoes, Christmas fudge and, most of all, her hugs. She is known for her simple generosity to her family and friends. Visitors rarely left her home without a gift - a tasty food item or perhaps a flea market find. She loved not only her own children and grandchildren, but everyone's children, being quick to strike up a conversation with others to admire their children. Proud of her Italian heritage, she came into the world on an All-American holiday - July 4th, 1922 - in Laura Lee, WV. She is preceeded in death by two brothers, Dominick and Frank Lopez; and two sisters, Thelma Crutch and Rose Wiggins. Survivors include her husband of 53 years, Carson Walter Broyles; one son, James Broyles of Spring Mills, PA; one daughter, Theresa Saus of Annapolis, MD; two step-sons, David and Thomas Broyles of New York; sisters, Sophia Lopez of Lumberport, WV and Frances Ritter of Baltimore, MD; two grandchildren, John and Peter Broyles; four step-grandchildren; and four step-great-grandchildren. Funeral services for the 53 year resident of Brooklyn Park, MD will be held at 11 A.M., Saturday at Singleton Funeral Home, 1 Second Ave., S.W., Glen Burnie, MD. Family and friends may visit from 3 to 5 P.M. and 7 to 9 P.M., Thursday and Friday at the funeral home. Interment will be in Glen Haven Memorial Park.
