They belonged to the Campers Club and enjoyed many years camping, and travelling especially to Shelburne. She was an active member of the Saint David’s United Church Bible Hill, until she suffered a stroke in 1977. In her later years after the death of her husband, she especially looked forward to weekends away with her granddaughter Christie, and a few close friends, Michelle, and Dianne.
