If she wasn't doing something to raise her own six children, she was taking care of grandchildren or the children of friends. She instilled in all of them a love of reading and classic movies, a fierce independence and a strong sense of family. In addition, she loved politics and worked on local political campaigns and election committees, volunteered at DeGraff Memorial Hospital and was part of the Bishop's Committee. She delighted in attending ceramic classes, scrabble, playing tile rummy and jitterbugging with her husband. She was almost always in the company of family and her best friends.
