A private gathering of her immediate family was held on Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014. We, as a family, are comforted in our loss knowing that countless others may be given a second chance through research thanks to her gift of her donation to the Anatomy Board of Maryland. Per her wishes, upon her return from the Anatomy Board of Maryland, her cremated remains will be returned to her hometown in Vermont. No public services will be held at this time.

The many cards and flower arrangements that have been received at the home of her son Joseph Craig, of Mount Airy, from friends and family are much appreciated. Thank you.
