In retirement, Ms. Douglas was an ardent traveler and visited five of the seven continents until her health restricted her to her home. Frequent visits from friends and family brought her great joy for many years and in her final months she found comfort from family caregivers, nephew Mike Douglas, and his wife Roxanne, nephew Lee Douglas, and his wife Lori, and her niece Carole Rebbel and her husband Jim. The family would like to give special thanks to Barbara and Roy Burroughs, Margie Westbrook and the members of her Sunday school class for their many kindnesse
