Mom and her life partner, our father Alfred, were married on Wednesday, February 4, 1948. Mom was a lifelong member of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church and an active member of the Altar Society where she chaired various committees. Mother found joy in cooking for her family and perfected her cinnamon roll recipe. She was an avid reader of newspapers and especially enjoyed the Reader’s Digest Condensed Novels.
