Helping others came naturally to her. She wasn’t afraid to roll up her sleeves and take on any project large or small. She loved nothing more than to give. She enjoyed shopping at the outlets—not for herself but for family and friends. She cherished all the holidays and adored animals, including her beloved dog Buddy.
