She would make beans, homemade bread and potato salad every Saturday night and feed the whole neighborhood as well as the local fire department. She was a giver and always loved to please others with her goodies, and late on in life with her crafts that she would share with everyone, especially the staff and residents of the Caribou Nursing Home.
