She requested there be no memorial service.

When I come to the end of the road, and the sun has set for me, I want no rites in a gloom-filled room-why cry for a soul set free. Miss me a little, but not too long, and not with your head bowed low; remember the love we once shared, miss me but let me go. For this is a journey we all must take-and we all must go alone. It's all part of the Maker's plan you see, a step on the road home. When you are lonely and sick at heart, go to the friends we know and bury your sorrows in loving good deeds. Miss me but let me go.

If you wish, memorials may be made to any Veterans organization or the local Humane Society.

Arrangements are by Hot Springs Funeral Home.
