She and her husband George were avid sports fans, rooting for the Chicago Cubs, the fighting Illini and Northwestern University football, as well as cheering on the local high school basketball and football teams in Waukegan. She had a gentle, easy-going personality, a quick wit and wonderful sense of humor. She loved animals, all things related to Charles Schultz's Peanuts characters, a good picnic and road trips. She was a former member of First Presbyterian Church in Waukegan, and more recently, an active member of Living Faith United Methodist Church in Waukegan. She is predeceased by her husband, George R.
