She was a strong, loving mother who worked hard as a hair dresser in Thiensville. She was an auxiliary legion member of the Howard J. Schroeder American Legion Post #457. Two of her daughters were Poppy Princesses. Her grandsons played football and baseball that kept her and Doc happy and active. She loved watching and yelling at the Green Bay Packers.
