Her pies were a favorite of family gatherings. She collected classic books at one of her favorite events, the annual book sale at Grenada Lake Medical Center. She read and discussed the novels of Faulkner, Hemmingway, Steinbeck and Grisham, and then passed the books on to family and friends. She provided care for hundreds of rescue animals over the years.
