She loved all of Godís creations, babies, men, flowers, animals, the ocean and the wonderful sunrises and sunsets. She loved all animals.
Her favorite things were camping trips to Russian Gulch or any state park, and all the family she could get to join her. Mother will be remembered for a life of honesty and integrity, along with love and faith in God, country and people.
She loved to go berry picking, out to a nice dinner and enjoy a good glass of wine, finding a good bargain, reading a good book, especially the Bible.
Mom married Leon Julius Prevost on July 18, 1972 in Reno. They built a good life together and he loved the family and kids a lot. They were married 25 years. Leon passed away in 1996. They went many places together and had lots of fun. Including going to Hearst Castle, Disneyland, visiting family and friends along the way. They purchased a camping trailer and used it well.
