She was an avid reader, bridge player, accomplished wordsmith, and scrabble master. She loved to play games with both her children and her grandkids. She was a frequent writer of letters to the editor. She nourished not only our bodies but she fed our hearts, minds, and souls. She was an inspiration to all of us and to all those she met. She loved all and gave all of her love to us. She cherished her kids, her grandkids, her great-grandkids and all of her nieces and nephews, brothers and sisters, and most of all the love of her life, George, with whom she is now reunited with in heaven.
