She loved collecting Christmas decorations, gardening, her home, her family, and her dog Cricket. She attended St Mary's Catholic Church in Oak Ridge.
A special thank you is extended to the many wonderful people who helped her through her final illnesses at Morning Pointe Assisted Living in Clinton, at Methodist Medical Center including Covenant Hospice, and at Briarcliff Rehabilitation Center. A special thank you also is extended to Dr. Daniel LeNoir and his staff at the Family Clinic of Oak Ridge for their exemplary medical care over the years.
A memorial celebrating her life will follow at a later date in Michigan.
