She was a former member of the Quaker City String Band Women's Auxiliary and a former member of Bellmawr Lions Club Women's Auxiliary. She enjoyed the art of crocheting blankets, especially for her family. Most of all she was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone and at the end of the day enjoyed a glass of wine.
