Leaving her homeland in Munich, Germany, venturing to Canada in her young years in hopes of a new beginning. Windsor was home for many years and later on moved to Kimberley BC, a city that tugged at both her and Joe’s heart strings offering a little bit of the old country. Enjoying the Rockies and sunshine in Arizona throughout the years, her love for animals and gardening.
