Her passion was golf, and she played for many years at Rolling Green Country Club, in Arlington Heights, Ill., and the Longboat Key Club, where she hit her first hole-in-one. Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren all play golf thanks to her encouragement and the many lessons she arranged.
