She enjoyed crocheting, sewing, fishing, gardening, canning, camping and collecting various memorabilia. She loved listening to country, bluegrass and gospel music and had a special place in her heart for Elvis Presley and Laverne Tripp. Her favorite sweet indulgences were vanilla ice cream and Smartie’s candy. She was a faithful member of Seventh Day Adventist Church in Buckhannon.
