Santa was a member of the St. Angela Merici Church Choir and Regis Club. Santa worked at Hotel Dieu Hospital and Windsor Catering (former Cleary Auditorium and Convention Centre) until she retired. Santa was very active in her lifetime, she loved gardening, sewing, knitting, day tripping, and snap chatting with her grandchildren.
