She was a member of St. Luke's Lutheran Church; the Marietta Welfare League; American Cancer Society, and Parkersburg Country Club. An accomplished pianist, she and her husband enjoyed sharing their love of singing before both large and small gatherings throughout their lives. In addition to singing in her church choir, she also played the organ.

She is survived by her son Jeff (Judy) Bergen of Worthington.

She is also survived by her nephew Doug (Jean) Bergen, and by nephews Steve, Robert and David Hopp, and niece Linda Hopp.

She was preceded in death by her husband Dick, her son Jon, her brother Bruce, and her parents.

A memorial service will be held at St Luke's Lutheran Church at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday January 12, 2013, with Pastor Steven M. Mahaffey officiating.
