She enjoyed playing word search puzzles and enjoyed snacking on peaches with cottage cheese and her favorite “Twinkies”! She loved her collection of elephants which were all gifted to her for good luck. She was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family, most especially over the holidays. She welcomed everyone to her home and had a place at the table for all. She was a dedicated sports fan of the Rams and Angels. Most of all she loved her family and treasured her grandchildren and was immensely proud of them all. She instilled in her children strong values, encouragement and wisdom that have served them well and gave them something to pass down to their children.
Mom was the strongest women we ever met. She wasn’t afraid of anyone or anything. She was a fierce Mother Hen when it came to her “4 Aces and 4 Queens”.
