She rejoined the workforce as a bookkeeper, financial manager and business owner. Later in life her kind and giving spirit led her to volunteer with Tidewell Hospice.
She was a loving and caring mother, wife and friend who will be sadly missed by everyone who knew and loved her. Her family and friends will think back on her quick wit and infectious laugh as well as her bravery during a hard-fought battle with cancer over many years.
