Her family was most important to her. She was always at their side through happy times of celebrations or injuries & illness. She never questioned why or how, it didn’t matter, she was there!

In recent years enjoying some of the places she traveled to were Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, New York City, and the view from the top of the Empire State Building.
