She worked in Grand Rapids for the RC Allen Company and later at Jet Electronics, from where she retired. She was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She was always very involved in PTA and other school and scout activities as the kids grew up. She was a wonderful provider of fun and happiness with all our wonderful family and friends through the years in camping, boating and always provided the most loving environment for everyone. She also had an angel’s voice and sang in the Sweet Adeline’s in Grand Rapids. Upon retirement she returned to the family farm in Sumner where she lived and cared for her mother and father. Upon their deaths she relocated to Apex, North Carolina, where she assisted tremendously with her two youngest grandchildren, as well as traveling to see her other grandkids and family often.
