In her free time she enjoyed knitting, crocheting, reading mystery novels and listening to Christian and Gospel Music. She took pleasure in being with nature, especially flower gardening and was described by her family as a very giving person with a great sense of humor.

(Shannon) of Marrero, LA and currently serving in Afghanistan, Eric M. of St. Louis, MO and Jeffrey A. of Elyria; granddaughter Ashlee; sister Patricia Ann Waters (Charles) of Cuyahoga Falls; brother Michael Sommers (Lynda) of North Carolina.
