She was a devoted member of Garland Grange #76 for 62 years and well known for her apple pies. She and her husband were "Grammy and Grampy" to many foster children for more than 20 years.

There will be an open house in celebration of her life held from 4-6 p.m. on Saturday, February 6 at the Garland Grange Hall, Oliver Hill Road in Garland. A private interment at West Garland will be held in the spring. Those who wish may make memorial contributions to Garland Grange #76, 262 Dexter Rd., Garland, Maine 04939.
