Her lifelong passion was art, her skill and talent were a gift from God. Combined with a fascination for history, her grandest achievement was the completion of a wall sized mural at the Virginia War Museum of Newport News. A lover of the outdoors, she enjoyed hiking, biking, skiing, canoeing and scuba diving. She embraced life to the fullest. She was smart, determined and always cheerful.

She is survived by her brothers, David Aldrich (Rebecca), Justin Aldrich; sister, Janice Lynn Aldrich; nephews, Andrew Aldrich, Chris Garcin (Kelsey), Mark Letenzi; nieces, Mariel Sluis (Dean), Kathryn Garcin; Sandra Harvat (Michael), and great-nephews Weston and Holden.
