She cared and loved everyone genuinely, a true homemaker at heart. Everything she did, she did with love, including her baking. During the holidays, her home would be filled with the smell of pies she baked up. Anything she did it was a great deal to her, from holidays and birthdays to the parades she attended. She would get dressed up for such occasions, but not much was needed because she was a beauty.
