Photography was a big part of her hobbies. She even took a photography class where us daughters were a big part of her subjects. She enjoyed traveling with Tim as well growing and tending to her Orchids and the landscape of their home which also became a great medium for her photography.  She had an amazing ability to grow plants and flowers.

 She loved Jesus without doubt, living life to the fullest as ambassador for our Lord and savior.
