She participated in ballroom dance competitions and taught line dancing at the Lake Kennedy community center in Cape Coral. Both she and her husband, Cesar, were active members of the Filipino-American Association of Southwest Florida. She was known for her energy, enthusiasm, and dedication to her parish community.
