She raised 4 wonderful children including my mother Donna Walsh Yonash, aunt Kristine Walsh Nielsen, uncle Kevin Walsh, and aunt Diane Walsh. She had many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, all of whom she adored.
Bringing our family together was something she held in high regard. I have fond memories of spending time with her fishing, celebrating birthdays and holidays, traveling to Milwaukee and she also took me on a trip to Gunflint Lodge, Minnesota and Vermont. On one of our trips, we roadtripped to Six Flags. That was the time of my life and she joined me on all of the rides except for the Batman rollercoaster (which is definetly not for the faint of heart). Having one on one time with all of her grandchildren was very important to her and I am grateful for the time she spent with all of us.
She loved telling stories of her adventures and thrill seeking. She really lived life to the fullest and loved to golf, hunt, fish and snowmobile.
She held animals and wildlife of all kind sacred and had a great respect for any earthly beast she was pursuing in the field.
I attribute my love of cats to her as she always had a sweet kitty to give her company and share affection. Before she passed, she would always smile when talking about her loving cat Gizmo.
