She lived in the Brownsville community her entire married life where she was very active in the community and the Brownsville Volunteer Fire Department. She was always the first one to step up to help a friend or neighbor. She belonged to the Shepard of the Hills Lutheran Church in Lead and enjoyed attending there until her health restricted her activity. She loved the outdoors and all wildlife and kept watch over her fields for elk and deer or any other creature that happened by. She helped with the fencing, feeding cattle, haying and gardening on the place at Brownsville that she loved. She attended any and all events that her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren participated in and was their #1 fan. She loved to hunt and successfully harvested many deer over the years. In her 80’s, she even conquered the new technology and loved her IPad where she could keep in touch with everyone via Facebook, email, messaging and FaceTime. She loved playing the slots in Deadwood and on her IPad at home. She loved family get togethers and hosted Christmas Eve every year for 30-40 people at her home. She was considered a second Mom to Cindy Ells (Ray) Haas from Dallas, TX. They came regularly to visit her. She lived for her family!
