She suffered a heart attack on October 6 and died of complications of pneumonia at St. Mary's Hospital on Friday morning, October 20, 1989.

For many years she faithfully and lovingly cared for her parents and sister besides being an active member of Little Cedar Church, taking an active part with its circles and L.C.W. activities. She was a helpful neighbor to many people.
