Mrs. Bassett passed away at the age of 84. Her parents were Russell F. and Vera Nelson. She grew up in Iowa, in the Harlan and Madrid areas. She met her husband, Carroll Ralph Bassett, in Des Moines, IA. They were united in marriage on Jan. 29, 1954, and moved to Detroit in 1956. They raised their three sons there. She attended Madonna University. She worked as a teaching assistant with students that were developmentally disabled, in Livonia. In 1997 they moved to Bradenton, FL, where they had an active retirement together. Ralph preceded her in death on Oct.28, 2011. Eventually she developed dementia, and her family and friends were supportive. She moved to assisted living. She was survived by her three sons, their spouses, eight grandchildren, and one great grandson. Her ashes will be interred next to her husband Ralph. A memorial service will be held later this summer, in Michigan. If desired, memorials can be made to alpha-1foundation.org. This is an uncommon genetic disorder that she and Ralph both were carriers of, it causes lung and liver disease.
