On Nov. 27, 1963, she married Wilfred S., who passed away in 1997. Her greatest joy was her family. She loved hosting the annual family Christmas party at her home on Searles Street and always had an abundance of food making sure everyone’s “favorites” were represented.

“Grammy” was well-known for her beautiful handmade quilts which she designed with loving care. Everyone in the family was a recipient of at least one quilt. She enjoyed fishing, liked to cook and try new recipes, enjoyed her flower bed, loved dancing, especially the polka, and going to new places.

She was the matriarch of the family and will be greatly missed by all her children and grandchildren. Her legacy is love of family and her concern for each one of us. She was always willing to help out a family member and made her home available as needed.
