Our Beloved Mother had many passions. The most important was always taking care of her children and being there for them throughout life and being part of her grandchildren's lives. She was always cooking and was an amazing baker. She had a passion for reading till she couldn't any longer, a passion for animals and children. There was always a houseful of kids swimming, playing games etc. a passion for country music listening to Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, Elvis etc. and she had such a beautiful singing voice. She also loved the Beatles and would dance with us after dinner when we were little to the Beatles playing. Our Mother was an avid ballet, tap and jazz dancer through her childhood and loved to dance the 50s dances such as the jitterbug with her friends. She loved to go on long drives with her husband Garry to Peddler's Village and beyond. She loved to vacation down the shore at Cape May and Wildwood Crest every year. Our Mother was a bright ray of light and loved by so many. She had many friends and family that she was extremely close to. She was always having family holidays at her house. Christmas was her favorite holiday, she enjoyed decorating with her granddaughter Kristine and Christmas music blaring and homemade cookies in the oven. Fall was her favorite time of the year with the leaves changing colors. She loved life. She will be deeply missed by her dear friend Gail and her daughter Kristin and joined in Heaven with her dear friends Ginny, Chuck and Uncle Frankie. Mom we will miss you greatly, you were a wonderful Mother, Mom Mom and Grandmother.

Services and interment will be held privately.
