Jessie loved to cook for her family; we had weekly sessions sitting at her table gossiping and laughing for hours while the kids played. She was passionate about her plants and yard, they thrived from her green thumb. She loved to dance with her dance card always full. Bingo/Casinos was also hobbies of hers, she could play her cards and yours too.
