She was also very involved in saroral and charitable endeavors having served as president of the Boothbay Harbor Congregational Church Guild, co-president of the Boothbay Harbor Couples Club, vice president of the Brunswick Emblem Club Number 323, and crafts leader for 21 years in the Anna Miller Circle of the Stuart/Jensen, Florida Elks Lodge, dedicated to raising money for the local crippled children’s hospital.

She was also predeceased by a grandson, John Yates.

Pierce, Florida, as well as her grandchildren, Julie Yates Breen, Lisa May Hibl, Jessica Giles, Stacey Dougherty, Heather Isherwood and Amanda Coyle.
