She loved to fish she could sit for hours doing that she would take wynter and anyone else that wanted to join her. She also loved bowling weekly talking and hanging out with her bowling friends. She also love playing darts going to the different places around the waterloo cedarfalls area and hanging out with her dart buddies. She loved to go watch softball weekly. She would come to the ball diamond hang out and talk to her softball friends and just sit all night chatting with all the softball teams. She loved having get togethers at my house or her house with all her friends and family sitting by the fire eating and chatting and having a good time. And she loves to watch the Cubs play and watch Hawkeye football. She loved to watch NFL, nascar, and the food network.
