In her earlier days, Mom did a lot of gardening. She always had lots of company visiting. She was very creative at making decorations for lots of home parties at her home, whole themes were carried out and there was lots of music, dancing and "fun times", Mom was always busy.

In Martinez, CA, Mom belonged to a Secret Pal Club with close neighborhood ladies. She was also a member of the Pythian Sisters.
Mom like to read a lot. And above all she liked to shop, all forms of it, and a lot! Ha!
In many parts of her life at different stages, she did not have a very easy life.
Mom helped people in her own way in large and small ways of thoughtfulness.
Above all, she saved and sacrificed for her family and she thought about others right up until the end!
She always said, "Do the right thing and love the people who are the hardest to love as they need it the most, mom included!"
Mom was a complex person, but we tried to understand her childhood issues and what motivated her thoughts, and sometimes her off beat way of thinking and doing things. She could be difficult to the "Max" but in spite of all, we stayed loyal and loving as a family.
"Dance and sing up a storm in Heaven Mom, and shop till you drop. We are all so grateful you are out of pain now and finally at peace. Love you Mom!"
