She took great pride in her home always keeping it meticulous and well decorated. She loved her roses, her garden, and working in her yard. She and Harold loved having parties at their home. It was common to have friends and family over for Poker nights, birthday parties, and holiday meals. She worked many different jobs. Her first, was at 6 years old at a bowling alley until her retirement after 35 years as a bookkeeper for Williams Plumbing.
