Her life was a living example of Ephesians 4:32 – “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”  She was an example consistently of forgiving.  “Great peace have they which love thy law:  and nothing shall offend them.”  Pslams 119:165.
