She was born on Aug. 24, 1945 in Moline. She was a waitress, a Tupperware lady, a bank teller, and many other things that involved interacting with people, which she loved, in addition to being an at-home mom (back when it used to be called “homemaker”). When her children were older, she opened her home to foster neglected children. She loved country music, dancing, doing arts and crafts (especially painting ceramics), collecting turquoise jewelry, her morning coffee and being with her friends. She never learned to swim, but not for a lack of trying. She also has been actively involved in the Lutheran Church over the years.
