the Girl Scouts through her life of service to that organization and the girls it serves. She provided an example of unselfish leadership during her career that spanned over four decades, from her graduation from the University of Washington and first Scouting job in Seattle in 1939 to her retirement from the National Headquarters in New York in 1982 as Director for the Camping Division.
Following her retirement to Birch Bay, Washington, she continued to serve as a Girl Scout volunteer and as the treasurer at the APA Cannery Museum. She was an active volunteer at the Blaine Senior Center. In 2001 she moved to Kalispell to live with her adopted family Jane and Scott Wheeler. She is survived by Scott and Jane and her adopted daughter Mrs. Toni Isarankura of Seattle. All who knew her will miss her intelligence, wit, and honesty. In her great life she made the most of everything she had.
