Her passions included knitting, cribbage and playing cards. The family has a special message for the community they would like to share: After our father passed away our mother lived alone, yet she never felt she was alone. She was so appreciative of the friends that she and Dad had made over the years and those who embraced her and offered their support after his passing. Despite the challenges living alone presented, she steadfastly refused to leave her home; her friends, and the community that had enriched her life for all those years. We are all so saddened by the cirll-ntnces {J:udjg '::' her pggthg but titidt'ak'6fi' solace in knowing she was where she wanted to be and the people she wanted to be with.
