She was a remarkable cook who enjoyed preparing a variety of dishes for her family and friends. She was a very avid reader with a large library of books, the majority of which were cookbooks. Every recipe created a new cooking challenge for her and she couldn’t wait for the opportunity for her family to taste her next culinary creation.
