She loved her profession and was always Weaving or embroidering. One day in March of 1965, she had had a dream in which Jesus gave her a book, days after missionaries gave her the Book of Mormon, and without hesitation she accepted baptism without hearing any talks. She moved to Venezuela with her family, stayed there about 20 years. She was a very helpful person, and had a lot of friends at home, all by her daughter. She liked to make different foods and desserts to please people, and they loved her because they were delicious. She taught herself to play the piano and later taught primary children. She loved music; she knew all the hymns of the church and was very picky about the melodies. After she moved to Salt Lake City where she lived 15 years, she met many beautiful people to whom she wanted so much and despite the language difference that existed with them, she never stopped talking and talking.
