She was a homemaker and farmHer, and enjoyed a career as the assistant librarian at Mercer Area Jr/Sr High School. She was a nurturing influence to many throughout her life. Many called her “MOM” in addition to her children. 

She taught many valuable life’s lessons and skill sets including gardening, cooking, cake decorating, sewing, and DIY home repair. She taught her family to be independent and to pursue their dreams. She was a wonderful example of all she encouraged them to be and was a source of strength and love to all she met.
