She was later employed as a box maker with AutoKraft Box Company until her retirement in 1997. She loved cooking and baking for family and friends. Her baking was always in high demand around the holidays. She enjoyed dancing with her husband and passed on her love of music to her family. A loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and sister, her greatest joys were family get-togethers with several generations of her family. Everyone who knew her called her Mom or Grandma and she accepted everyone into her family equally, whether they were born into it or came by marriage. In her last year she resided at Rest Haven-York, where she loved interacting with the residents and staff and they loved her too. Her favorite times were when her "little ones" visited.
