She was always very active and loved gardening, fishing and their camp at Rangeley. For the last several years she was at Sandy River Nursing Home where she enjoyed doing crafts and puzzles with the residents and staff members. She always tried to make sure the residents were attending the activities and also greeted all the new residents and made them feel welcomed. The family would like to thank the staff at Sandy River Nursing Home for treating her like family and giving her all the best care, even during her last moments.
