Her sweet potato pies, german chocolate cakes, biscuits, steak and gravy, and cornbread are unmatched delicacies that linger fore front in the minds of those who tasted them and anything else that she ever prepared with her magical fingers which were sometimes created on a wood burning stove.

All of her children grandchildren and great grandchildren were sports orientated and excellent in her eyes. She was an avid fan of The Lakers, The Sparks, Pittsburgh Steelers, Golf, and Tennis and she was a die hard fan of Candice Parker, Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods and Serena and Venice Williams as well as Pete Sampras.
