Gardening was her exercise and working @ Lake Winona Camp in the summer was for enjoyment.

She loved taking trips “without leaving the farm”, visiting exotic locations via The Travel Channel & treasure hunting adventures on Oak Island from the safety of her chair. She was proceeded in death by her parents; Frank & Jean Hedwig (Kozikowski) Tyburski; her brother Joseph Jules Tyburski; her sister Elizabeth Jane ‘BJ’ Bailey; and youngest son Christopher John Benio.
