She enjoyed caring for, and spoiling, her children and grandchildren whenever possible. Her love of music such as the band, Def Leppard and getting the opportunity to meet them in 2016 and have her picture taken with them was a high point in her life. She loved showing cows at the Essex County Fair during her high school years, and was active in 4H during those times.
