The blessing of being a stay at home mom for a number of years and the love for cooking and baking gave her the opportunity to provide meals that were not only nourishment for the body but also for the soul. Once she entered the workforce, she received her LPN License and enjoyed more than 25 years of employment at Massillon State Hospital and retired.
