She was a member of Veteran of Foreign Wars Bremerton Post No. 239 Ladies Auxiliary and Reliance Chapter Order of Eastern Star.

She took great pride in her home, taking care of her roses and tending to her yard and garden. She also provided long and short-term care for several close and extended family members over the years."
