Beloved Baka to six grandchildren, eighteen great grandchildren and one great great grandchild. Family was the most important part of Mom’s life and she found strength in her faith. She embraced her days caring for her family and cooking wonderful meals.
She would spend hours in her vegetable garden and tending to her flowers. She also enjoyed knitting, canning, traveling and many trips to the casino. She loved life. While Mom had memory loss, she never lost her sense of humour.
