An accomplished violinist, she was the concert mistress of the Cosumnes River College Orchestra. She loved painting in oils, a skill at which she excelled. She never sold her paintings, but was always willing to give them away. She cofounded the family business, Spartan Home Loans, in 1975. She never knew a stranger because she loved people. But most important and best of all, she was a child of God and went to be with her Lord and Savior on November 28, 2011 at the age of 66.
