Whisper lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures chatting with family and friends, snacking, reading books, and spending time with her little sister and her friends. Whisper had an uncanny way of reaching people in a deep and positive way. Whisper also loved sports and played basketball, softball and volleyball during her teenage years with her crew. Later in life, she loved to watch her football teams Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos and was torn between both teams. Whisper enjoyed her time of cruising the back roads, camping, hiking, spending time outdoors, making art, being with her family and listening to her country music.
