Her passion for sewing began at an early age and continued throughout her life, which included working in the tailor shop at Sears for 15 years. She loved having her family gathered around a table of food that she lovingly cooked for them. She was a parishioner of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church in Thorold, and a member of the Italian Catholic Women's League. She was also a founding member of the Padre Pio Prayer Group in Thorold.
