She worked at a nursery school in Michigan for a few years after her marrige until she and Mike moved to Indiana. She then proudly served as a Food Service Worker at IU Ball Memorial Hospital for 42 years.
She enjoyed reading Christian books, listening to music and making a home for her family.

She also has one brother, Steve (Stephanie) Collins of St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada; one sister, Susan (Bill) Lafollette of Greenville, Michigan; three nieces; one nephew; and many friends from Ball Memorial Hospital who were very special to her.
