Her specialty was orchards, earning her the tile “Orchid Queen”. She spent countless hours in her yard and vegetable gardens enjoying their beauty and bounty. Something she shared freely with family and friends. We will continue to enjoy the beautiful flowers and other plants she has grown and consider them a positive reminder of her love of gardening and family.
