She inherited her father’s passion for baking and developed such a homegrown talent as a cook of comfort food for her family that many of her recipes for dinners and desserts were published over the years in local newspapers and magazines. Our family fondly remembers her traditional Sunday dinners of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. She was a prolific knitter and has left our family a legacy with many handmade sweaters. Our Mom’s steadfast devotion to our Dad and our family, her generous and tender, loving kindness, will be missed by all who knew her. A very special thank you to the wonderful staff at The Village of Aspen Lake for their loving care over these past three and a half years, and to the residents and their families who became her second family.
