For the last eleven and half years, she spent her time at home raising her twins, Steven Lee and Bailey Marie Jones. Her hobbies were needlework, silk screening, painting, hand bags, jewelry and tending to her rose, flower and solar gardens. Her greatest hobby in life was shopping, be it info commercials, junk mail, QVC or just walking through a store, she always found something that she just had to purchase.
