She was a homemaker up until Curtis entered Junior High and then went to work for Thriftway as a checker and later on as a Loan Officer at Far West Bank, before retiring in the early 90’s. She enjoyed the ocean and watching the waves. Loved to cook and bake wedding cakes, sew, knit, but above all her greatest joy in life was her six grandchildren. She had a great sense of humor and was no match to a card game.
