She loved gardening and always had a large garden, a weed dare not enter!! She happily shared it with family and friends or whoever wanted some or needed some. The last garden was when she was 97 yrs old. She had a driver’s license until she was 100 yrs old, she stopped driving before that expired.

She loved baking cookies and pies and giving them away, after a visit with her you usually left with a bag of cookies or something, she was always giving. At the family get together’s we were always blessed with a huckleberry pie; she was in the hills picking huckleberries until approx. 90 yrs old.

She was a life-time member of the Seventh-day Adventist church. She was a prayer warrior for her family and loved and cherished by all.
