Everyone loved and always requested her homemade angel food cake with the famous peanut butter frosting. She loved making sloppy joes, chicken dish and krautburgers in bulk so she could share with all of her family and friends. Anyone who visited Romilda saw how much she was loved and how much she loved others by admiring the walls in her home. She was surrounded by walls that were filled with pictures of her loved ones.
