She was a dedicated mother and grandmother, enjoying life’s precious moments.  Her professional life began at the Northeast YMCA then for over 30 years as a medical transcriptionist at Medical Center East. She enjoyed delving into captivating books and was a talented seamstress. Her adventurous spirit took her on trips with friends as she created lasting memories. She was an avid gardener - it reflected her connection to the earth and her joy in nurturing the beauty of the world around her. Her poetry allowed her to capture life’s fleeting moments and the memories most important to her. She would express gratitude for the love and companionship shared throughout her life. Her Christian faith, which guided her in life, assures her the eternal love that awaits us all.
