7 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. She will be remembered most for her love of children, baking and cooking, rose gardening, knitting, and driving where ever she could see something wonderful.
She took much pride in feeding her grandchildren as much candy as they desired, eating chocolate, ice-cream sundays and having a nice cup of tea.
She made her home with her daughter Judy and son-in-law Michael, here in Wilmington over the past 13 years.
A celebration of her life will be held at 3 p.m., Sunday in Wilmington, at the Wilmington Burial and Cremation Service. The Pastor Steve Jessen, will officiate.
