Her main joys was her family, always lending a helping hand to family, friends, neighbors and anyone else that needed it. She loved to go camping and traveling. She enjoyed bird and wild life watching. She loved playing games – especially the card game golf. She loved the beaches in Florida and collecting sea shells and making things from them. She was a lover of all animals and loved yard sales.
