She cherished all of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Photos adorned her home of her beloved family. She will be remembered for her wonderful skills in the kitchen. Many of her great grandchildren are now making bread from her starter. Her dill pickles were craved by all as she grew her own dill and each jar contained her secret ingredient; love. She and Al loved to bake pies on the weekends. She also liked to crochet and made the most beautiful doilies and scrubbies that she gave away as gifts. In the summer months she loved to garden and tend to their beautiful flowers. She treasured her yard art and bird feeders.
