Throughout the years she was an avid bowler and belonged to several teams. She also loved kids and especially enjoyed attending church and growing vegetables in her garden.

Her loving family includes five daughters, Joanne Carpenter (Larry French) of Hornell, Gloria (Peter) Fisher of Florida, Judy (Thomas) Smith of Almond, Bonnie Simms (Rod Davison) of Hornell and Brenda (Brian) Gayhart-Franklin of Canisteo; one brother, Donald Bennett of Florida; as well as many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins.
