Mom had many interests, including running her own business making draperies for several drapery showrooms. Countless households enjoyed the beauty of her work in their homes. She loved to read and often shared books with the rest of her family. She loved to garden, crochet, sew, puzzling, crosswording, and visiting with family. Mom had a special place in her heart for her grandchildren. She spent countless hours with them sharing her many talents and creating traditions. We thank the staff at Beehive Homes of Draper for the six years she was a resident. We clearly saw the depth of care provided and the time various staff spent with her and getting to know one another. In addition, the deepest thank you possible to Elevation Home Health and Hospice was there for mom and for the rest of us in this difficult time.
