She enjoyed Dilly Bar visits and even said sometimes she would eat ice-cream for breakfast. She enjoyed a good glass of Mogan David wine. She always enjoyed St. Patrick’s Day, because she said “New Dublin would always have a nice parade for her birthday.” “Erin Go Bragh!” She enjoyed driving around looking at Christmas lights or going for rides with Marge. She also enjoyed getting away and relaxing with Bernie Briski, Jean Marie Mueller, Mark and Judy Fellers, and Linda Friday. She was also known for her favorite coleslaw and potato salad recipes.
