God blessed her with a creative spirit. She was a fabulous cook and would bake loaves of bread and deliver them to others who were grieving, ill, or just needed a ray of sunshine in their lives. She enjoyed crafts, photo scrapbooks, and many other creative activities. She also organized trips and events for her family and friends.
