She loved her daughters, her siblings, her grandbabies, family gatherings, telling stories, great food, playing cards, laughing as often as she could, gardening, shopping, helping whoever she could, camping, fishing, driving, heirlooms, antiques, sneaking sweets to her grandkids, and the Denver Broncos.
She is preceded in death by both of her parents, Duane and Velma, the father of her children, Larry Doolittle (Marriage April 6, 1974-2014), and her Grandmother, Minnie (Nan), and her beloved Uncle Philip Ellgen.
