        She was a member of Calvary United Methodist Church, Mohnton since the early 1960’s and was the church secretary for 20 years. As a child, she spent her 5th grade through 11th grade years in Aruba where her father was the principal at an International School. These years were the most exciting years of her life. Returning to the U.S. for her senior year in High School was not an easy transition. She traded her dreams of being a foreign correspondent for marriage and children. She loved reading, chocolate, her children, chocolate, her grandchildren, chocolate and great grandchildren. She loved her church, being in the choir, her church friends and traveling.
