~ Family Tribute ~

She went to St. Pats in Wyandotte and graduated from there.

Work History
Her younger years she worked at Neisner’s Dime Store in Wyandotte. But her full time job became raising a family of 7 children. So many meals had to be cooked but when her husband retired she told him “It’s your turn to cook because I’m done”.

Organizations Involved
She was involved in her church alway went weekly to mass until she was not able but kept her faith. She gave generously to the parish and religious groups outside of the church.

Personality Traits
She had a huge heart, very caring and very kind. She carried every emotion of everyone she cared for. She was very social and had the gift of gabbing even to the strangers she encountered. She never lost her humor or her feistiness.

She loved to bowl, play bunko and in her younger years she loved to knit. Loved visiting her neighbors for coffee. But we believe her favorite hobby was shopping and most definitely the dollar store. She loved to travel with her McGrath clan and loved camping trips with her family.

What you Remembered for
Her love for her family never left her. She loved her husband the first time she saw him and he saw her. Her grandkids and great grandkids were the joy of her life, she always loved to talk about them to everyone. She was very proud. She cherished her children and knew they wanted the best for her even though she thought they were bossing her around the last few years, but she knew it was for the best and never stopped loving them. She had wonderful friendships and neighbors and always kept in touch. She was a strong woman and fought hard every time she was against a battle, whether it was a health issue or the loss of a loved one and from her beliefs it taught us what a family is truly all about, Love!!

Liked to be Remembered
Her family and her upbringing. She was very close to her siblings and never forgot about her nieces and nephews always on board with the McGrath trips. Her love of the holidays and everyone together meant the world to her, never left anyone out even if they were a stranger. Her Irish heritage was very important. Her love for clothes and bright colors were important to her always wanted her hair to look nice especially if she was to see her brother because he believed your hair should always look nice and that haunted her. She loved her flowers in the summer and always told us you better have tomatoes.
