She loved visiting archeological sites of the Native Americans. She loved the outdoors and the time she lived on her ranch. She loved all animals; she was always surrounded by them. She loved to travel. She has been to Mexico five times. There were many summers that she would load up the entire family in her car and just drive to wherever the roads led her.

For several years she has been compiling her life story which now is hundreds of pages.
