She just adored children and wanted them to know they were cared for and loved, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She looked forward to celebrating holidays with her family, and did all she could to make them special. Every Sunday, she prepared a traditional dinner of spaghetti and meatballs for her entire family.
