She was one of the oldest members that stated the Bible readings the church did when they moved into their new complex on Stuart Road in the fall of 2010.
She was retired from the American Uniform Company.
She was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother who will be missed all those who had the opportunity to know her.

Broomfield; and one grandson Pat McKellip.
