One thing about a loved one dying is you get to hear all sorts of things from people that had a different sort of relationship than a child. She was a lot of things including:
• Woman of deep and unwavering Christian faith
• Charter member of Woodbury Baptist Church
• Chairman of the Board for the American Baptist Homes of the Midwest
• Everything at the Science Museum! Volunteer coordinator, trainer, as well as teacher in the exhibit halls, faithful donor and charter member. Grew the volunteer program from fifteen to over five hundred volunteers as the museum launched into becoming a major science center in 1978. Developed a volunteer and intern training program that qualified for continuing education credit through the University of Minnesota. Ardent cheerleader for the role and mission of the Science Museum.
• PEO member and instrumental in obtaining education grants
• Teacher and passionate for education
• Lovely lady and great conversationalist
• Take charge person
• Avid reader
• Lover of baseball and football (as long as the Twins and Vikings were winning)
• World traveler, seamstress, square dancer
• Always ‘put together’ and incredibly classy human being who lived a really full life
• She was known for her pleasant presence with a touch of ‘bling’
She was all of these things, but to us, she was just mom and grandma and will be dearly missed by many.
A private family celebration of life will take place in the future.
In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Woodbury Baptist Church, PEO Chapter R, or Science Museum of Minnesota.
