Worth, Texas and Margaret Gins (Joshua) of Charleston, South Carolina; grandchildren, Miles and Max Slinde, Bart Myer, Parker and Mitchell Gins, Alyson Gay (Ted), Ansley Brasher (Brad) and Alex Scott (Lara); and a nephew, Michael Hart (Susan).

A private family gathering will be held at the National Cemetery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The family would like to express their thanks to her caregiver, Kathy Wells and members of her Hosparus team.

Back in the early 1960's I worked for your mom and dad at the Taos Plaza Theather... I was very young, but they gave me a chance just like the other kids in Taos.
Your Parents were so good to me that I will never forget them, may god bless them both and ZI know they are together again.
