She also enjoyed preparing breakfast for the residents of the Princeton Elim Home. She was proud of her 15 years on the Nursing Board for Benton County. She loved gardening, cooking, canning, quilting, sewing, farming, and listening to a Twins game on the radio (not so much if they were losing). She loved children and taught Sunday school and Bible school classes at Estes Brook Evangelical Free Church and the Country Church for over 50 years. Nothing would brighten her day more than when her students, past or present, would visit with her. Her most treasured moments were spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved many, and was loved by many. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
