In her later years, she loved to have lunch with her friends at the Great Bend Senior Center, and then spend the afternoon playing cards and laughing a lot. For over a century, she shared with everyone the love and joy that filled her heart. 

The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:30 a.m., Friday, September 16 at St. Patrick Catholic Church, followed by a burial ceremony at Great Bend Cemetery.
