They resided on the Meadowlawn Golf course where she enjoyed to golf. She belonged to The Ladybugs Golf Team. This was her favorite summer time activity. She also liked to play bingo, bunco, bowling and loved vacations to Mexico and cruises. The most important thing to her above everything was spending time with her family doing anything.
She also was a big animal lover! She was called the Cat Lady because she took in strays and fed them. She has had several pets through the years. She was loved by everyone and Mom and Grandma to all! She ran a daycare for many years and those kids to this day think of her as Grandma. She was there for anyone and everyone that needed her no matter what. She has always put everyone else first before herself her entire life. She will forever be missed by all and forever in our hearts!
