She as a diehard Cub fan and was so thrilled to see them win the World Series. We know she will be watching them win big this year, Go Cubs! As an amateur genealogist, she kept track of all the births and deaths in her large family. She loved to send cards to her family and friends, and enjoyed word search puzzles. Above all, she was a sweet, kind hearted lady who loved her family and gracefully dealt with what life handed her.
