Her patience and kindness to these people was extraordinary. She was currently working on her doctorate degree and was nine months from completion.

Her two Shih Tzu dogs, Spencer and Sophie, and her two cats Sadie and Sunshine, were an important part of her life.

      In 2000, she moved to Reno, Nevada. She enjoyed playing her piano, downhill skiing, water skiing, and karaoke. She was always remembering family, current friends, and friends from many years ago with birthday cards or other greeting cards.
