She loved to crochet and sew, but traveling was her favorite thing to do. Her family jokes that she “stayed in the road all the time.” She also cherished her family, cooking for them and taking care of her grandchildren. She always looked forward to family reunions so everyone could be together. She will be missed dearly by her family and friends, but she has left a lifetime of memories for them to hold close to their heart.
