Her last job was working at Thompson’s rose nursery.

She lived with her daughter Teresa, granddaughter Sonia and great grandchildren SkyeBird Annalise, SterlingFox , SageRose Esperanza, and Christopher Robyn-Bear. And as she lived so did she pass surrounded by her daughters , grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends at her bedside.
