During her career, she was a School Librarian. She also was a volunteer docent at the Everson Museum of Art for over 25 years. Education was always important to her and she always encouraged her children and grandchildren to continue learning. She enjoyed art, reading, playing golf, bridge, dominos, mahjong, and doing crossword puzzles. Her family was especially important to her and she enjoyed entertaining them and preparing many meals for them. She and her husband traveled to Italy, Nova Scotia, England, Germany, France, Norway and Denmark as well as many US states. For her 80th birthday, she treated her children to a cruise to Alaska. Her favorite saying was "always do something for your community, your church and yourself". The family would like to thank the caring staff at McHarrie Life for the excellent and compassionate care she received there in assisted living and skilled nursing. They would also like to thank the thoughtful members of St. Mark's Lutheran Church.
