She was also a member of the Daughters of Isabella and the Edwardsburg Golden Agers. Lottie loved to watch old cowboy movies. She enjoyed traveling, reading, sewing, crafts, and playing the organ. She especially enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around you and whispered, "Come to Me." With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
