her home and family. While raising her daughters she was the assistant

Arizona where she fell in love with the desert and enjoyed the

She spent her last two years at Prestige Assisted Living in Henderson,
Nevada where the wonderful, caring staff took excellent care of her,

Burgstahler (Wayne); granddaughter Jessica Dodd (Kevin); and great
grandchildren Kaylynn and Everett.
