Her interests as farm wife and mother were mainly outdoor activities. She enjoyed gardening, hunting, fishing (prided herself in taking grandchildren gopher hunting and creek fishing). She was indeed loved so much and appreciated for her great help, nurturing, loving spirit, for her family, and for her life here on this earth.

After moving to Spokane she lived at Broadway Court Estates, always enjoyed her family and friends there and her great joy in life was serving and knowing Jesus as her Savior. She was fond of saying, “I’ll see you all in Heaven.”
