In addition to being a mother, wife and homemaker, mom enjoyed sewing and, for many years, worked at Trinity Memorial Hospital as a seamstress. Mom had a great laugh, beautiful singing voice, and big heart. She loved to play bingo or just sit out on her porch swing and watch her tomatoes grow. She was a fantastic cook and some of her families’ favorites were her pasatellis, breaded pork chops, chocolate éclairs, and Swedish coffee cake. It was always a treat to stop by mom’s house for a cup of coffee and visit. You never left hungry for food or love. She will be terribly missed as our anchor, best friend and role model.
