She enjoyed outings, car rides, and going to local restaurants with her long-time friend, Diane of over 50 years. In her healthier days, she enjoyed cooking homemade meals using her Mother's recipes including mac and cheese, soups, made the best potato soup. She enjoyed visiting friends and family and had a huge family. She had a huge collection of family pictures over the years and found a passion for telling the stories behind them. Her grandchildren and great-granddaughter were her shining stars. She enjoyed crabs and fish dinners and had her favorite restaurants. She loved hanging on to antiques and collectibles.
