In her spare time she enjoyed reading books, doing needlework, and spending countless hours working in her yard. She also spent her time volunteering at the library, Meals on Wheels, the Humane Society, and driving cancer patients to their doctor appointments.
Her family was her true passion, especially her grandchildren. She was a very proud and active grandmother. She was their biggest fan and would cheer at their sporting events, attend school functions, enjoyed having them at her house to play games and make their favorite meals. She loved her family and friends with her whole heart & soul and will be greatly missed.
