They were married 42 years until Jim died February 3, 2011 from injuries sustained in an auto accident. They lived in Daleville, Alabama; Everett, Washington; and Moscow, Idaho before moving to the Tri Cities in 1980. Launa and her family have made the Tri-Cities home ever since. Launa worked for many years as a technical editor at Battelle - Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and DOE-RL. She loved her work and the people she worked with. She often said she had the best job in the world. Launa received national awards for her work in communications on the annual Hanford Groundwater Report, Environmental Report for the Hanford Site, and journal articles.

In lieu of flowers or gifts, Launa asks that memorials (tax deductible) in her name be sent to the Monastery of St. Gertrude, 465 Keuterville Road, Cottonwood, ID 83522. Launa hopes you will visit the monastery's B&B, history museum, the sanctuary, hike the woodland trails, and see the amazing work the sisters do.
