When she wasn’t cooking or reading, she enjoyed cross stitching, and she always provided a cross stitched blanket for every baby born to her family. Her love for parties and social gatherings followed her to Texas, as after moving into Palmera Heights Retirement Village, she quickly became their Director of Activities, planning all of their parties and events for many years.
