She was his partner in life, in parenting, and in ministry for 59 years. She moved with her husband to Sebring, Florida in 2006 and they enjoyed many years of retirement building wonderful memories with family and friends. She loved her children fiercely and adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Her life was celebrated by her children and grandchildren in a small private service on January 12, 2023, at Spring Hill Memorial Park and she was laid to rest next to her loving husband. A memorial service may be held at a later date in Florida where they served so many years. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you donate to a ministry of your choice.
