She enjoyed reading cookbooks late into the evening to find a new recipe to try and enjoyed the monthly luncheons with the "Dancing Friends" and the Brunswick Cemetery Club. She struggled to eat food even when her health deteriorated to the point of losing her ability to do so. No public services or visitation will be held. Burial will be in the Pleasantville Cemetery, rural Whitehall. Edison Funeral Home, Independence, is assisting the family with arrangements.
