She worked many years as a keypunch operator and she would volunteer at her church and library. However, her heart was in the many things she did for her family, such as teaching her kids and grandchildren to cook with passion, little league and softball mom, class room mother, and Girl Scout mom. She had a love for entertaining, one of her fondest memories, shared by many, is a seven course dinner we called “Big Night” aka Mambo Italiano Dinner. She was happiest when surrounded by her family, friends, and loved ones.
She always said, “Be good, if you can’t be good be careful.”
