She continued to travel throughout Europe, Australia, Hawaii, and cruises to Mexico and Alaska during her retirement years.
She was an avid cook and liked to try new recipes she learned from her travels. She also enjoyed knitting and cross-stitch making many beautiful blankets for family to cherish.

She leaves behind many friends at The Chateau Valley Center where she spent her last wonderful years enjoying time with friends.
