She also had a great love of reading. She enjoyed going “East of town” both with Jack and then Jackie, often for a “Chicken Run”.

She was a wonderful cook. Her specialties were doughnuts, potato salad, homemade noodles and buns, and her famous baked beans. She loved to make the noodles for family get-togethers as they were the most requested.
