She had a very close relationship with her family and enjoyed writing letters to them frequently. Her interests included counted cross stitching, Sudoku, bird watching, playing cards, and cooking...she made the best cheesecake. She had a good sense of humor, a great attitude and the biggest heart of all. She will be missed dearly. Visiting will be Sunday, November 26th 1 – 4 PM at Barbara’s house in Waldwick. In Lieu of flowers, donations to Wounded Warrior would be appreciated (www.woundedwarriorproject.org).
