She retired from the University of Kansas Medical Center, where she spent most of her career.
After retirement she headed west to Denver, CO. Here, she continued her love of travel by visiting many of the National Parks in the West. She also got to enjoy her love of cactus in their natural environment. She would later relocate to Pendleton, IN to be closer to family.
