She had a love for being outside under a shade tree, enjoying conversation with her visitors, and sipping a tall glass of sweet iced tea. She was so proud of the many flowers Pops planted just for her, and if you were lucky she would give you a personal guided tour all around the property to show them off.

Another pleasure she enjoyed was preparing home cooked meals for her family. Not many people could take just any cut of wild game and turn it into a delicacy like Nana could.
