She worshipped with her friends at First Congregational Church in Painesville and was a member of Affirmation Ladies, a church group that meets weekly to encourage and strengthen each other through prayer. Her fondest memories were raising her children, spending time with her grandchildren, great grandchildren, and her career with Lake County.
