She attended many events for her granddaughter, Jenn, from many school activities to dance recitals to track & field events. She enjoyed going on many bus trips, enjoyed coloring at Holy Family Manor and attended the many activities at Holy Family Manor. She always had a smile on her face, and she had a great sense of humor. Upon her death, she got one last ride to Lititiz, and thank you to Billy Solderich for bringing her back home. She fought a tough battle.
