In Saskatoon she worked as a Care Aide at Lutheran Sunset Home for 20 years until her retirement in 1992. In retirement they enjoyed winters in Arizona and summers camping. Throughout her years she had seen many changes in the world; embracing life and learning new things even technology. In her later years many hours were spent on her ipad doing Sudoku. Watching TV was a great pastime for Mom, she enjoyed her Bold & Beautiful and curling. Mom was a very kind and gentle person who made everyone feel special. Family was so special to her, and she so enjoyed the fun and loving times at the family gatherings. The grandchildren and great grandchildren held a special place in her heart.
