She was a state champion square dancer, bird watcher extraordinaire, excellent knitter, needle pointer, gardener, world traveler and Simpsons fan. She was also a life resident and lover of Kirkwood. There will be no services. Special thanks go to Rhonda, Destiny, Rachel and the many nurses that cared for her over the past year.
