She began college shortly afterwards at NDSU and completed her college work at St Cloud State with a degree in accounting. She worked for many years as a medical transcriptionist using her wonderful mind and nimble fingers. She dearly loved using those fingers to play the piano and was gifted at playing by ear.

She has many special friends in the Phoenix area who were touched by her generosity and positive influence. She had keen instincts to discern how others felt and the ability to skillfully listen, care, advise, or assist everyone she contacted. She will be missed by all.
