She enjoyed shopping and more shopping, cooking, taking care of her grandchildren and she loved to collect dishes, napkins, tablecloths and glasses. She was a natural interior designer…when you walked into their home, you instantly felt a sense of warmth, love, comfort and welcoming.   During the holidays, she would decorate a table like a picture from a  cover of a magazine.  She also had a secret passion for orchids which she grew in her own backyard.
