She was an avid bridge player and continued to work until she was 88. She loved fishing and would often tell stories of going fishing with her dad and brother or throughout southwest Colorado with Bob and their sons. She was a strong and independent person with a good sense of humor and an even better laugh. The people she loved, she loved dearly. She was a loving wife, mother, grandma, great grandma, and great great grandma. She will be deeply missed by all.
