As a volunteer she worked as a reading tutor, school nurse, for meals on wheels, and voter registration. She loved nature, was an able photographer, an avid reader, and could bake an outstanding apple pie. She loved Sinatra, marching bands, leisurely walks, and visits to the Dairy Queen. She quietly collected cartoons, old handkerchiefs, and the joys and concerns of each and every one of her children.
