She was preceded in death by her husband, Byron; two sons, Gene Raymond and Bernard Edward; her mother and father; five brothers; six sisters; two grandsons and a great-granddaughter.

Miss Me - But Let Me Go.
When I came to the end of the road,
the sun has set for me -
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room
- why cry for a soul set free?
For this is a journey wel all must take
and each must go alone -
It's all part of the Master's plan -
a step on the road to home -
Miss me a little -- but not too long,
and not with your head bowed low -
Remember the love we shared - you and I --
miss me - but let me go-
WHen you are lonely - got to our family and friends we know,
and bury your sorrow in doing good deeds -
Miss Me - But Let Me Go-

Funeral services were held August 5, 1992 from the First Christian Church in Kellerton, Iowa, conducted by Rev. Merlin WILKINS and Rev. Cela FUGATE. Music was provided by Mrs. Merlin WILKINS and Greg FARMER.

Casketbearers were Mark HOFF, Tom GILES, Dean FUGATE, Greg FARMER, David FARMER and Richard FARMER. Burial was in Maple Row Cemetery at Kellerton, Iowa.
