Special to her was shopping with the girls in the family, hanging out with her girlfriends at their monthly luncheon get togethers and spoiling grandchildren. She loved finding reasons to get together with friends and family and loved holidays and all the cooking that goes along with them. She had a caring heart and if anyone was sick or needed something, she was right there to take care of them. She always seemed to have the right thing to say and an ear to listen.
