She worked for many years as the treasurer of Haun Motors whom her father founded during the late 1950's. She enjoyed cross stitch, knitting, games on the internet, and black jack at the Casino. But what meant the most to her was cooking and spending time with her family. She will be sorely missed by her family and all of her many friends.
