Chub deeply loved her family and friends and had a wonderful, kind soul. She
enjoyed gardening, music, cooking, and traveling and had a passion for fashion and
interior design. She had a zany sense of humor and enjoyed showing it at every
opportunity to brighten the lives of those around her. When times were difficult, she
always managed to display a quiet strength. Never one to complain, she inevitably
looked to the future rather than the past.
