She was a great cook, loved to sew and had a passion for making everything from clothing to curtains, pocketbooks and the like and a collector of fine African art figures and Jewelry. One of her greatest passions was traveling regularly to flea markets here in NY and even venturing out to New Jersey where she was adept at finding the best of items.
