She enjoyed shopping, taking care of her Koi fish pond, and cuddling with her grand puppies. She especially loved taking care of her family and was so proud of her daughters and all their accomplishments.

She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 41 years, Douglas S. Bird; daughters, Lauren and Elizabeth; mother, Mary Dumbach; brothers, Joseph (Diane), Richard (Nancy), Kenneth (Joyce) and Edward (Terri) Dumbach; sister, Caroline Turnbach (Philip) and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
