Grammy loved babies, spending time with them and looking through photographs., She would show them to anyone and everyone she spoke to. She loved her embroidery and won several blue ribbons for her work. She loved puzzles and word searches and had stacks of them in her closet because she received them for Christmas and her birthday every year. She loved travelling and visiting with family, especially trips to Dairy Queen for her large strawberry sundae and always sharing that last bite with Honey. She was the #1 fan of wintergreen lifesavers, eating them by the bucketful.

She loved being called Grammy because she was Grammy to everyone!
