Mom was all about family. She was known for her artistic abilities with cake decorating, interior design, embroidery, sketching, painting, and sculpting with clay. She had a green thumb and loved working outside, raking her yard and planting flowers and vegetables. She previously volunteered at Kent Hospital in the pediatric wing. She also provided her beautifully decorated cupcakes multiple times for the Coventry Library bake sales. She also worked as a nanny. Her biggest joys came from spending time with her grandchildren and dogs, Jonny and Bentley. She was full of vitality, positivity, character, wisdom, and most of all fun. She was always there for us when we needed her. She will be greatly missed by all of us.
