Throughout her life, she took every opportunity to provide help, love and support for those who were in need, and actively donated to many charities, including the Wounded Warriors. Her husband Dale, introduced her to the sport of golf, and she excelled at it, winning many tournaments throughout the years she played. She was once awarded "The Spirit of Golf" award at Trophy Club Country Club for her sportsmanship. She enjoyed traveling, fly fishing and camping in the family RV, as well.
