A lover of music and tap dancing she would hum songs and dance wherever she went, whether it was going up to the store for some coffee and your favorite cookie, doing loads of laundry the second you got home from work or school, or just dancing in her room. A lover of Nat King Cole, Josh Groban and Andrea Bocelli, she would play their songs around the house for all to hear. She was a homemaker and was actively involved in her community. She volunteered at the local schools, was a packleader for her son’s Cub Scout troop and was a communicant of St. John Vianney Church in Colonia.
