Her family, especially her grandchildren, brought her great joy. She took pleasure in spoiling them and developed special relationships with all of them. She will be sorely missed. She was the most welcoming host and loved to entertain opening her home for family, Bridge Club, parties for the Rotary Club and fundraisers for Bristol Hospital. Her warm smile and contagious laugh made everyone feel at home. Christmas Eve was her favorite holiday which she enjoyed creating happy memories for her family. We will cherish those memories and fondly remember her every Christmas Eve. Her shining example of unconditional love, hard work and the importance of family was her gift to all.
