Another pleasure was playing cards and dominos with her many friends and family. During her illness, she loved having her precious cat, Misty, by her side. Most of all, she loved being a wife, mother, and Mimi to her beloved grandchildren. She adored her beautiful grandchildren and her most precious times were spent with them.
