Mom was an avid Detroit Tigers and Lions fan. She loved ceramics, traveling, shopping, visiting with the homebound, and celebrating holidays, especially Christmas. She was a long time member of St. John Vianney Catholic Church, 4101 Clyde Park SW, Wyoming, where a Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 am on Friday, July 31, 2020. Visitation will be held Friday for one hour prior to the service at the church. Those who wish may make memorial contributions to Faith Hospice.
