She loved to camp and travel with her husband and daughter. They loved to square dance, traveling with friends to square dance conventions, Cancun, Hawaii, Alaska and winter with friends in south Texas and Florida.
She loved to decorate for the holidays, gardening, flowers, crafts and decorating sweatshirts (they were beautiful!). They were members of the Night Owls square dance club and longtime worshippers at Bethany Baptist Church.
