In addition to being a beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother, she enjoyed a successful career as a Psychometrist/counselor to special needs children.  She traveled extensively and never shied away from an adventure.  She became a certified scuba diver at 60 years old and went hot-air ballooning over the mountains and desert of Arizona well into her 70's.  She lived life boldly, with integrity and great faith in God.
