Her interests were many and varied. She enjoyed bowling, sewing, crocheting, playing solitaire on the computer, and attending to her flowers before her own health started to decline. She stoically and lovingly took care of not only her mother, but also our father in the later years of their lives when their health was declining.

We are comforted knowing that she is in a better place and is now under our heavenly Father's eternal care.
