She loved crocheting and sewing and would gift dish rags and blankets to many. She loved to watch baseball and basketball, especially the Utah Jazz and BYU. She supported her grandchildren in the sports they played. LaJune also found joy in making homemade strawberry jam. This was something she would give to all of her children.
