She worked for many years for Gannett Publishing. During her life, she was known as a jack of all trades. She would attempt to do almost anything, usually the hard way. Her family refers to her as the “Hardest working woman they know.” She was a caring and thoughtful daughter, sister, wife, mom, grandmother, and best friend.
