Cindy said her sister had a heart of gold and always made her laugh.
She was also dedicated to her work.
"She would do her job, make sure everything was done, and was filling in her little black book," she said.
"She got paperwork emailed to her and was still keeping up to date with what was going on at work. She didn't want anybody else to stress about that and really took pride in her job."
The family is hoping to hold her funeral on Saturday.
