She had many hobbies throughout her years; several that were featured in popular magazines and newspapers, including her Apple Head Doll creations and intricate, decorative goose and duck eggs. She was a member of the Toledo Doll Club for many years and enjoyed collecting antique dolls and creating her own teddy bears. Her latest creativity was designing and crafting greeting cards for the special occasions of her many friends' lives, all tailor-made to reflect their personalities and interests. She loved her bunco friends and lived for her once-a-month bunco parties. She has been a Charter member of the Order of the Eastern Star in Samaria, Michigan.
