Mom had many interests in her life that she shared with those closest to her. She loved to travel with Dad, and we all made many special memories during annual family holidays to Sand Key Florida. She was a dog lover and raised and trained both Beagles and Bouvier des Flandres. She enjoyed many hours needlepointing, knitting and sewing. Mom had a passion for music, especially live music, her and Dad enjoyed many live music shows over the years. She loved to laugh, and often had us all in stitches at the dinner table. Her greatest love in life was her husband, her two daughters and her grandchildren. Mom had many friends and was especially grateful for Jacqueline Cook (Smith) with whom she shared a dear friendship for over 80 years – many thanks, Jacquie. We are so sorry that we had to say such a quick goodbye, Mom.The teachings and memories you have left us with are everlasting. We will carry you in our hearts till the end of time.
