A lot of her time was spent with her family around the kitchen table talking while she sewed, shelled peas, or working on some other great idea her grandkids talked her into such as a tik tok dance or taking pictures with snap chat filters. Her hands were so tough from wear, yet so gentle with kindness and love.
