She found great happiness in the simplest pleasures in life, growing beautiful plants, creating a loving and nurturing home, and cooking delicious meals with what appeared to be magic. In her later years, she spent may happy hours walking along South Beach in Marco Island, knitting for charitable causes, chatting with friends at the pool, and relishing her endless winning-streak at Bingo.
