While she never drove a car, she loved being taken on long road trips around the U.S. and cruised to Alaska, Caribbean and also visited Australia, Bora Bora and Tahiti. She enjoyed playing slot machines in Las Vegas and in Black Hawk/Central City Colorado and no buffet could get between her and gambling. She loved to fish and was an accomplished angler. She would go on long fishing trips with her trailer to Delaney Buttes and Twin Lakes Reservoirs and many other fishing holes.

She is an angel who has gained her heavenly wings and now watches over her family.
