Aja loved fashion and design and had a unique sense of style and flair. She was a very creative person who enjoyed taking photographs, making beautiful gift baskets, and performing on stage with the Logansport Civic Players. She never met a cat, a monkey, or a baby that didn’t melt her heart. All babies, but most especially her own. She was beloved by her large, extended family and friends. She always wore a smile and will be greatly missed. Aja’s greatest love was for her children.
Visitation will be at Kroeger Funeral Home Wednesday, March 27 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with service following at 1:00 p.m. The service will be officiated by Aja’s uncle, Donald Fuller. Burial will be at Mount Hope Cemetery in Peru immediately following the service.
