She was a past member of the Huron County Humane Society and sewed many costumes for the Towne and Country Theatre throughout the years. Sis also enjoyed attending her kids and grandkids school and other activities, sewing and quilting, cooking, entertaining and family gatherings. Above all, she was an excellent wife, mother, and grandmother.
