Her faith was especially important to her. She went on two mission trips to Columbia and China. Her favorite part was rocking the babies in the orphanages. She absolutely loved to talk and visit with anyone. She was never short of anything to tell you and sometimes she would tell you twice. If she called you on the phone, you could count on needing a few hours.
