She also enjoyed quilting and crafting with her sister in-law Laurie and Church friends. She was a caregiver to her Mother in-law Jeannine Burghard for her last few years, and will surely be missed by all who had the pleasure to know her. She is survived by her son Jay Burghard, Brothers- Donald (Sue) Hilfiker, David (Laurie)
