She enjoyed gardening and was a caring neighbor to all who knew her.
She was the devoted mother of Carol Anderson and Frederick Fischbach (Maureen); grandmother to Jill Anderson, Lauren Shand (Craig), Jaime Derringer (Jordan), Daniel Fischbach and great-grandmother to Colin Shand, Chloe Shand and Amelia Derringer.
