We thank God for her life of volunteering (including resettling refugees in Denver, her Methodist Church, nursing homes, Campfire Girls, the YWCA, the Nature Center, and the Colorado Council of International Organizations, among others), her love of plants as a botanist, her love of birds, and her travels to all seven continents. Besides this she had a passion for watercolor painting, working crossword puzzles and spending many hours on family genealogy.
