retirement quilted and crocheted beautiful projects for her family.
Gardening was one of her passions and the treasures of her harvest found their way into her cooking and
our fridges. This love of cooking and baking led to the sharing of secret family recipes that have stood
the tests of time. She also loved giving one-on-one cooking and baking lessons to the four hungry
grandsons who were the greatest joy of her life.
