She was preceded in death by her husband; parents; sisters, Jennie (Harry) Kaul, Erma (Carlton) Christianson; two half sisters, Doris (Eddie) Wade and Ruby (Don) Eisele; brothers, Vernon (Janice) Dockter and Harold (Susan) Dockter; brothers-in-law, Conrad Nokleby, Robert Marshall, and Raymond Welch; one grandson, five nieces; two nephews; one great niece; one great nephew, and one great great granddaughter. 

The families would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the entire staff at the Lutheran Home of the Good Shepherd for the loving care they provided.  Memorials may be made to the New Rockford Cemetery in her name.
