Wherever she went, she told the best stories and had the type of infectious laugh that would cheer up those around her. She was a member of the American Business Association, worked at the Traveler’s Insurance in Dayton, worked at Stolle Corp in Sidney, was a homemaker, and assisted her husband on the family farm and Real Estate Business.
