Her latest job for many years was at Leetik's Esso River John, where she enjoyed seeing familiar faces as well as many other customers who came by. In her spare time she enjoyed (and was very skilled at) knitting, sewing, diamond art and was always up for a good game of cards or doing a puzzle, especially with her good friend, Teresa Heighton.
