Pat Bittinger keeps busy any way she can. The 73-year-old Gainesville resident builds, repurposes and constructs furniture, rescues dogs (of which she has six), keeps up with her two grandchildren, has bought and remodeled two houses in Gulfport, Miss., and cultivates a garden. Her garden, which is only one of her many hobbies, has recently won her the 2016 Residential Beautification Award.
