In keeping with her giving nature, she has chosen to donate her body to the Human Gift Registry at WVU. A memorial service will be held Saturday, at 2 p.m. in the John H. Taylor Funeral Home, Spencer. Friends may call at the funeral home 90 minutes before the service.
With her dedication to animals, donations in her name to a local animal shelter or humane society would be greatly appreciated.
