According to her wishes, no service will be held. To honor her memory, the family suggests generous donations be made in her name to Deer Creek Animal Hospital 12235 210th Rd. Chanute, KS 67357. They shared her love of animals and helped her care for the many unloved, abandoned, abused and neglected animals that found solace in the sanctuary of her loving home.
