For many years she worked in the restaurant industry as a Cashier/Hostess and in her spare time she made homemade peanut butter fudge, prepared excellent meals for her family and found time to create many beautiful fine stich embroidery linens.

West of Seaford; two grandchildren, Chris McMullen (Ashlee) and Eric Swift; eight Great Grand Children and several nieces and nephews and close friends she considered family.
