Her most favorite hobbies include reading, cooking, baking and crocheting. Her favorite things to bake were fresh apple cake, fruit cake and home made fudge.  She also enjoyed doing crafts with the grandkids, crossword puzzles ,and reading the Night Before Christmas at the family dinners on Christmas eve.
