Her hobbies included many years of a fun bowling league with fellow teachers and co-workers, socializing and outings with her special circle of friends, loved planning nights out at the movies and lots of dining out with her beloved husband and family. Very committed to her catholic faith, often never missing a mass even on vacation despite dad saying the obligation was “waived” when traveling.
