She also loved watching Perry Mason, Dancing with the stars, Dodgers baseball, and girls softball. She enjoyed playing games, playing Bingo and going to the casinos. She loved her dogs, Duke and Baby. They were her spoiled “babies”.  Her pride and joy were her children, Kyle and Shirley, her grandchildren Jared and Peyton Solf, Taylor and Shanlee, and her great grandchildren Cooper and Ozzie Solf.
