She moved to Alliance and lived there until 2014, when she returned to Gering to be closer to family because of health issues.

She met many new friends when she moved to Heritage Estates in July of 2019.
The family would like to thank the staff at Heritage Estates and Regional West Hospice for their kind and loving care.
