She enjoyed anything to do with art; ceramics, painting, and sewing were among her favorite pastimes, and she shared that love with her family through hosting ornament making parties for the kids and having a surplus of supplies to keep them occupied anytime of the year.

She cherished her family above all else and she will be greatly missed.
