She moved to Minnesota in 2018 and enjoyed her new neighbors and friends in White Bear Lake. She was an avid card player and would sit down for a game any time of the day.
As her body began to fail, she chose hospice to provide care and support, and left this world on her own terms. Sheâll be missed terribly by her family and many friends. A memorial service will be held for her at the First Presbyterian Church of White Bear Lake on Friday, June 25 at 10:00 am. Memorial donations can be made to the First Presbyterian Church of White Bear Lake in her honor.
