She loved to spoil her family and church members by preparing exceptional meals.

She worshipped at the Gila Valley Baptist Church (GVBC). She demonstrated great love for her Lord and savior Jesus Christ dedicating her life in prayer and sharing the good news that Jesus had died to pay the price for our sins setting us free. 

She was a member of the Grant County Art Guild for more than 40 years.  One of her prize-winning paintings “Stay Molly” can be seen in the hallway of Gila Regional Medical Center next to the surgery center.  Her favorite holiday was Christmas. She loved making Christmas ornaments and custom cards.
