In addition, she had attended St. Michael’s Byzantine Catholic Church and had pursued a variety of recreational interests, including knitting, crocheting, quilting, and attending craft shows. She had enjoyed cake-decorating and candy-making, as well as traveling, reading, painting, and solving puzzles.

She is survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Joseph and Karen Simko of Poland, and her niece and nephew and their families.
