She was born to Athur and Esther Gausman on November 28, 1931, in Kimball, Nebraska. She was an only child. On July 8, 1951, she married her high school sweetheart, Morris, and they spent the next 64 years together. In their retirement years, they spent the winters in Mesa, AZ, where they loved to play golf and have “happy hour” with their many friends. She also was an avid bridge player.

She is survived by 2 sons, Mark (Debbie) Labertew, Michael Labertew, and son-in-law Steve Cadez. Her daughter preceded her in death in 2009, as did her husband, Morris, in 2015.
