She enjoyed her garden, cooking for her family and anyone else lucky enough to enjoy one of her meals, curling and square dancing at the Rowletta community centre, being a member of the C.W.L. in both Marquis and Moose Jaw, and the many other activities that came with being part of a rural Saskatchewan community.
