At the age of 6, she emigrated to the United States with her family, eventually settling in Helena, Mont., where she attended school and graduated from Helena High School.

She lived at Covell Gardens for several years, and in 1994, she moved to Lake Oswego, Ore., to be near JoAnn and her family. She lived at Carman Oaks until her death.

For many years of their marriage, she and her husband hunted, fished and camped in Montana. They were both involved in Masonic Orders - he in Masons and Shriners, she in Eastern Star. They were both avid bowlers and she was still teaching people to dance the Charleston when she was in her 80s.

She was preceded in death by her daughter JoAnn. She is survived by JoAnn's husband, Joe Buley, and their three children, Jane Buley Baird, Anne Buley Prince and J.J. Buley. She is also survived by her daughter, Donna and her husband, Richard Hands, as well as their two children, Mark and Barry, and three grandchildren.
