Mom loved camping, hiking, and gardening, but her favorite outdoor activity was fishing.  She spent many happy days fishing lakes and ponds with friends and family in the Tyler area. She also treasured the time she spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She loved to cook.  Her family especially looked forward to delicious holiday meals of turkey and dressing, and pecan pie. She was an avid reader and passed her love of books onto her daughters.
