Spending time with her family and friends were her greatest joys. She admitted to enjoying an occasional trip to the casino, as well as playing cards and bingo. She had a passion for golf and was seen on the Wapsipinicon golf course at the age of 92 when she enthusiastically tried her hand at putting. She was very competitive, questioning, “Can I keep my handicap in heaven?”
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to the First Congregational United Church of Christ or donor’s choice.
