She was a faithful member of Hanover United Methodist Church.

She was an accomplished seamstress, enjoyed reading a good book, going on a great shopping adventure, a fierce game of cards, and, occasionally, gambling. She liked athletics and enjoyed playing softball when younger. Her greatest love was babysitting for her grandchildren and being with her great-granddaughters.
