She graduated from Wichita North High School and attended Wichita State University. She was employed by the City of Topeka, Parks and Recreation Dept. for 39 years. She was a director at Crestview Community Center, Garfield Community Center, Rice Community Center, Oakland Community Center, Municipal Auditorium, Topeka Zoo, Gage Park Mini Train, Carousel and Concert Director. She was a volunteer at Helen Hocker Theater and was a previous Helen Hocker Theater board member. She was preceded in death by sister, Geneva Rhodes. Survivors: brother, Jack E. Chester of Wichita; sister, Frances Rivers of Bullard, TX; many nieces and nephews.

What her obituary doesn't tell you is that she was pure fun! She would serve you a fabulous meal, wait until you were stuffed then asked "Who wants a banana split? I'm buying!" Her house was a treasure trove of fun things to do and see.
