In addition to Rotary, she donated time and money to various non-profit organizations in the community including the Family Support Center, St. George Art Museum, United Way and Children's Justice Center. She always looked forward to Christmas and the chance to ring the bell for the Salvation Army. Helping others and giving back to the community was her gift to the world. She will also be remembered for her love of Michael (her husband of 30 years), her daughter, two sons and 3 grandchildren, black coffee, dressing up for Halloween, and giving hugs to strangers and friends.
From a card at her memorial service:
If I should die before the rest of you, break not a flower nor inscribe a stone,
Nor, when I'm gone, speak in a Sunday voice, but be the usual selves who I have known.
Weep if you must, parting is hell ... but life goes on, so sing as well.
