Her adventuresome spirit had also led her to go skydiving, parasailing, zip lining, dog sledding, and thrilling rides in a professional race car, a glider and an open cockpit biplane, all after the age of 82.

Her graveside funeral will be at 1:30 p.m. Friday, January 17, 2020 at Missoula City Cemetery. Chaplain Jack Rowan will officiate. Arrangements have been entrusted to Garden City Funeral Home in Missoula.
