She was actively involved in the Czech community, baking kolaches for the Czech festival and participating in committees at the Czech Hall. She entered baked and canned goods in the County and State fairs for which she won many ribbons. On a Saturday night, you would find her at the Czech Hall dancing, enjoying polka music, and her many friends.
