She was a member of First Baptist Church and enjoyed fellowship with her friends in her small group for many years. She appreciated nature and sharing that with others as a former member of the Briarcliff Garden Club and had many award-winning floral designs in their shows. She was a talented seamstress and enjoyed making costumes and dolls for her grandkids, upholstering furniture and sewing her daughter's wedding dress. Her gift to anyone who visited in her home was a seat at her table where she ministered with her skills as an excellent cook, a loving heart and a listening ear. Her favorite part of life was spending time with her extended family interacting, playing table games, sorting puzzles, having meals and laughing together.
