One of her fondest known passions, which brought her great joy, was going back to her roots of Port Royal. She was instrumental in keeping the spirit of Port Royal community alive through participating and coordinating the 93 Port Royal Reunion Committee. It became an annual summer event which attracted those from near and far. In most recent years her greatest pleasure was sharing this experience with her beloved grandchildren through song and stories.
