Later in her life she became a crossword enthusiast. She loved the color purple. She enjoyed going to casinos and trying her luck. When she could no longer venture out she enjoyed video poker games from the comfort of home. But above all, Markay cherished spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She found joy in their company and treasured the moments they shared.

She loved to call her friends and family on the phone and just stayed in touch with everyone. She was always talking about some crazy adventure or drama happening around her, you could feel her smile through the phone.
