She enjoyed her family and everything else revolved around the love for her children and family. Carmen was close to her entire family and always enjoyed spending time with her brothers and sisters. They had sleepovers and played and sang together in music jams (music was one of her great joys), and went shopping together. She enjoyed Sunday dinners with everyone together; she loved to cook and bake, and made the best pies. Carmen had made all of her children's wedding cakes as well as many others. The kids liked to eat the mistakes. She could garage sale with the best and even found a golf cart for her to give rides to the grandchildren at the farm. She enjoyed the outdoors and taking care of the farm. Carmen was a true blessing from God to Dean and her family.
