Mrs. Van De Hey belonged to the Catholic Church, enjoyed square dancing, camping and hosting frequent parties. Her favorite saying was, “Fine as frog’s hair!” and her favorite toast, quoted from her father, Hedley Vicors, was:

Here’s to you and yours,

From us and ours,

And if us and ours ever come

Across the path of you and yours,

May you and yours be as good

To us and ours,

As us and ours are as

Good to you and yours!
