She made friends everywhere she went. A social butterfly, she was known and loved by all. She was not only beautiful, but talented as well. She was a novelist with contacts at Paramount and Random House. She loved to cook. She was a tavern owner with Sonny in Kernville, Calif. She lived on and helped run a gold mine in Arizona. She enjoyed her time with family and friends. Loved the river in Parker, Ariz., where she lived off and on and she loved her little dog Sophie. She leaves us with lots of good memories.

Donations in her name may be made to the Hospice Compassus.
