She was a homemaker supporting her husband and family during his 26 year military career and 20 years of business career. She moved to Valparaiso in 1975 when her husband was assigned to Eglin Air Force Base. She was a farmer’s daughter, raised on a dairy farm in Northern New York and then traveled with her Husband to various assignments in the Air Force. She enjoyed bowling and golf and became very skilled with home crafts while her husband was away. She was a great cook providing meals with many secret ingredients. While she was not a “joiner” in organized groups, she was very supportive in her husband’s Masonic Fraternity and is widely known and respected in the Masonic Community, especially in Florida. She was a friend to many and could be depended upon in their hour of need. In lieu of flowers we suggest donations be made to Fort Walton Beach Hospice.
