She had the heart of an artist. She was funny and irreverent. Her work areas teem with fabric. Paintings, books and newspaper clippings. A sign reminds those who enter that "Creative clutter is better than idle neatness." Painting and quilting were her loves. Genealogy was her passion.

She traced her roots through the centuries and helped countless genealogists on the Internet and in libraries.

She was proud to be a homemaker, wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She will be missed not only by her family, friends and neighbors, but by the postman, grocery clerk and all those she came in contact with in her daily life.
