A graduate of the University of Wisconsin with a BS in Physical Medicine, she was a registered physical therapist for over 40 years.  She especially enjoyed working with pediatric and geriatric patients.  She entered the profession not for the money, but for the satisfaction of helping her patients.  Her gift to her patients, in addition to physical therapy, was her compassion.  She believed that talking and listening to her patients and their families was an equally important part of their therapy.

Pallbearers will be Jesse Wilson, Brady Price, Hunter Beaumont, Jaxton Beaumont, John Paul Sledge, Glenn Ebby, and Robert Nugent.
