Twila loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. When her four girls were young she would sew their matching Easter dresses and her husband Bill would film the “Easter Parade” as each proudly walked down the sidewalk to the car. Not only was Twila the perfect Wife and Mother, she was also active in many Canal Winchester community affairs. Twila loved playing Bridge and Euchre with all her great friends, gardening, competing in the annual Canal Winchester Garden Club Show and attending the Tuesday Senior Center luncheon and card game. She was very active in her church and helped serve countless banquet meals with her friends and made many beautiful quilts and crafts for their annual Craft Bazaar.
