One of her many special talents was her ability to make friends whenever they moved to a new community. She quickly got to know her neighbors many of whom stayed in touch with her over the years. She always looked for opportunities to meet new people and often belonged to the local Lady Lion’s Club as well as the local curling and golf clubs. She also met and became friends with many of the people in the TransAlta community.
