Her passions and interests included the arts of painting, drawing, and writing in which she returned to school for in the early 90’s, attending Somerset Community College on a Donovan scholarship. She also loved music and took up piano lessons in her mid-life. She was involved in the local bowling leagues in years past, and was an avid jewelry buff, both selling and collecting, she won awards from Sarah Coventry Jewelry in top sales. Fairzina enjoyed arts such as quilting and crochet as well, and was an excellent seamstress after going to school for design in Connecticut, before Mr. Jones’ retiring to Somerset, from the military.
