She loved to cook and in the past few years had become proficient at canning pasta and pizza sauce, beets, pickles, and jams. Known as “Mem” to her grandchildren, she enjoyed sending packages to Connor and Jordan and always looked forward to seeing them via Facetime.

She was forever grateful for the role each person played in her life.
