A service was April 13 at David Walley's Hot Springs Gazebo.

She donated her remains to the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine, Department of Physiology and Cell Biology.

Memorial contributions may be made to the University of Nevada Reno, Board of Regents Scholarship Fund, Reno, NV 89557.
