Mom and Dad enjoyed a summer home in Island Park, ID and a winter home in St. George, UT. She loved nature, cooking, sewing, traveling, camping and fishing in Yellowstone with Dad.
Mom loved life and fought hard to live her 99 years to the fullest, fighting blindness and extended illnesses in her final years. She amazed everyone and was an example of strength and courage, a true hero and champion to all who knew her.
She leaves behind many great recipes, treasured crocheted blankets, fishing stories and lasting memories. She was a lady of great integrity, kindness, and honesty. She was funny and smart to the end and had a beautiful smile.

The family would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the many family and friends who brought so much love and joy to her life. A special thank you to Advanced Health Care and Hospice, especially Julie, Rachel, and Bre for their loving care to Mom and our family, you truly blessed our lives.
Mom leaves a legacy of strength and love and she wanted her family and friends to know how much she loved each of you. She has come off the mountain for the last time to join Dad but together they will remain in the valley of our hearts forever and ever.
