of her husband, she returned to Freeport, Illinois in 1963. She worked
for her father in his securities business, sold real estate, and became
a para-legal. In 1982 she married Charles Tibbits and they moved to Tucson
in 1986. Active in So. Arizona Water Color Guild, the Delta Gamma Sorority,
playing Bridge at her Ventana Canyon Club, she still spent much time doing
water colors, and took part in regional shows. There will be no funeral
service. A family memorial is planned for the children at her Tucson home.
In lieu of flowers, the family would suggest donations to the American
Cancer Society. Arrangements by ADAIR FUNERAL HOME, 1050 N. Dodge Blvd.
