As the Head of Continuing Education at the Assoc. of Operating Room Nurses in Denver, CO (1983-1988), she led the educational component of international nursing conferences at the Hague, Netherlands and Singapore.
Preceded in death by her parents, brother Willard “Tom” and dear friend Jean Bradley, she will be deeply missed by her sister-in-law Valerie Allen, and devoted nieces and nephews, Craig (Seva Khalsa); Edith (Detlef) Weiler; Elaine (Jim Cooney); Brian (Betsy); Mark (Pascale); Bradley (Jude); and Sharon Allen, as well as her grandnieces/nephews, Kiyana, Nik, Ben, Jonathan, Derek, Caroline, Megan, Katherine, Claire, Davia, Luc, Sean and Seth.
