She was a baker at Westminster College for more than 25 years, where everything she made was from scratch. After retiring from there, she started testing for the Salt Lake School District, where the kids always wanted “the little grandma” to test them. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints where she held numerous callings.

She is survived by her 3 daughters, Debra Sorensen, Becky (Bill) Hill, Chrissie (John) Hillam, 11 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren (with 1 on the way) and 3 great-great-grandchildren (with 2 on the way).She is preceded in death by her parents, husband and 1 great grandchild.
