She was the one with a van load of kids going off to the roller rink or having all the kids to the house for a pool party or sleepover. She loved being a mom! When the kids were grown, Mom went back to school and got her Associate degree in accounting. She also got her EMT license. She worked for Lakeville-Lapaz ambulance service for several years. She also worked for St Paul's nursing facility, where she loved caring for her elderly patients. In 1983, she met the love of her life, Stanley Forsythe. They were always off doing something together. They had many great adventures together, traveling all over the country and seeing the sights.
