She was always active in the community. She was a member of the PTA, University Farm Circle, Enchanted Hills, the California Veterinary Medical Association Auxiliary, Sutter Davis Hospital Volunteers, Embroiderers' Guild of America, UC Davis Presents and International House.

She is survived by her daughters, Susan Irene of Davis and Linda Bankowski of Riverside.
