Sondra loved sitting on her front porch, bird watching, and playing Yahtzee even just by herself. She enjoyed going on vacation, especially to the Smoky Mountains. She also loved working on puzzles, cooking, and being surrounded by family. Many times she cooked for them all at family get-togethers, which she always looked forward to attending.
