She was an avid gardener and was one of the founding members of the Forest Lake Garden Club.

We would like to thank Mom’s caregivers at the Meadows on Fairview for their kindness and good care. Thanks to Ecumen Hospice for the wonderful care and comfort they gave her. We appreciate everyone so much.
