She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Monroe, MI, where she was a past greeter along with other volunteer work at her church.  She also did volunteer work, in past years, as a nurse in her community.  She loved spending time with her family.  When her children were young, she enjoyed being involved in their school, community, and sporting activities.  In recent years, she enjoyed being able to share in those experiences with her grandchildren.  She liked to sew, bake, do crafts and spend time shopping with her sisters.
