She was a member of Prairie View Golf Club and recorded two holes-in-one during her lifetime. She was a member of the Englewood Shell Club and Indian Lake Eagles Auxiliary #3615. She also enjoyed gardening, birds, reading, and most especially the time she was able to spend with her family and extended family.
