She enjoyed sewing, she loved fashion, loved being outdoors spending hours gardening (aka playing in the dirt), traveling and just enjoying all that life had to offer. Her most enjoyment came from being a grandmother, where she truly loved and spoiled her grandkids. Aggie never met a stranger, to know her was to truly love her.
