She also worked several years after retirement at Superfresh in Cambridge. <br /> <br /> Sidney loved to go to different places and meet new people. She also loved to read, do crossword puzzles and eat ice cream, but she really loved to knit. She was known for her amazing socks she made and gave as gifts. You knew you were special when you received a pair of Mor Mor socks. (Mor Mor was her grandmother name). <br /> <br /> Sidney's legacy includes her daughter Connie Hurley and her husband Paul of Cambridge Maryland, her son Brad Anderson and his wife Valerie of Emerson New Jersey, grandchildren Michael Hurley (Jessica), Erin Era (Chris), Joshua, Jonathan, James and Abi Anderson and Jared and Ryan Balsam.
