Following her grandkids activities through the years was something she and Melvin thoroughly enjoyed.  Her kids and grandkids meant the world to her and hated missing anything.  She was also an avid St. Francis Flyers fan and enjoyed attending games up until a few weeks before her passing.  St. Francis and the entire Humphrey community were near and dear to her heart.
