Besides her quilting not many knew of all her volunteer work over the years: warm up America, caps to the capital, Newport Hospital, Navy Marine Relief Corps, Lucy's Hearth Woman's Shelter, Potter Animal shelter and other animal shelters across the bay, Forest Farm Nursing Home, Sweaters for Africa, St. Michaels in Bristol making prayer shawls to name a few. She received many awards and accolades over the years. Always loved helping others and traveling to new places.
She liked the 'just me' design the best.
