She enjoyed being outside, doing activities such as pitching softball to her grandchildren, working in her vegetable and flower gardens, and taking nature walks through the woods. In addition to doing needlework, she was an excellent cook, and rarely turned down the opportunity to play a game of dominoes, which she often won.
