She enjoyed gardening, playing card games, reading, caring for many beloved pets over the years, traveling, history, watching her favorite tv show Law & Order and following politics. At her request, no services will be held, but rather honor her by spending time with those you love, enjoying a hot fudge sundae or playing a game of cards.
