She loved to travel, do crafts, help with her church and play with her many grandchildren. She loved her bus trips to the casino’s with seniors from New Jersey in her younger years. She was an avid collector of lighthouses and of pictures of those that she loved. She had a quirky, sometimes inappropriate sense of humor but had an infectious laugh that was contagious.

In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to assist the family with burial costs and will have a GoFundMe account at later date.
