She was a Unit Secretary in the ICU Department of St. Elizabeth Hospital North for 30 years, where she was a much-beloved member of the team and gave comfort to many families before retiring in 1993.

She was born in Somerset, Kentucky and was an original ‘Southern Belle’ who never lost her gentle southern voice, nor her loving kindness.

Survivors include her daughters, Becky Herzog and Gay (Alan) Dolezal; brother, James (Donna) Nelson; daughter-in-law, Grace Waddle; grandchildren, Buddy Schwabe, Jr., Sara Schwabe, Chris Chinn, Ashley and Maddy Dolezal and 6 great grandchildren.
