She always called her daughters at 6 am every year on their birthdays. She loved and celebrated her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She attended as many sporting events and special occasions as she possibly could. At Christmas time, she would line up the grandkids for pictures, first, in order by age, then by their height. Every year she decorated her house for every season and holidays…Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Spring. She loved redecorating her bedroom and always moved her furniture around, never leaving things in the same place for very long. “Let’s Make a Deal”, “Price is Right” and “Family Feud” were her favorite shows to watch. She never met a stranger and everyone that knew her, loved her.
