After living in Barnwell for sixty seven years, she decided to sell her beloved condo that her sweetheart had built for them, and moved to Ogden, Utah to live with her daughter. She was sad to leave all her many friends and family, but was ready for a new adventure. The last year of her life was spent traveling the world, enjoying each one of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
