On Feb. 18, 1966, she married Roger W. Hefner in Rockford.

She was employed with AT&T for 32 years. After she and her husband retired, they spent a great deal of their time at their home at Table Rock Lake in Missouri. There she enjoyed fishing, reading and relaxing days with her husband, who was her life.

Survivors include a daughter, Linda Idstein, Florida; a grandson, James (Joanne) Rich; two great-granddaughters, Lilly Rich and Juliette Rich; two brothers, Steven (Jan) Kuhn, Sycamore, and Tom Kuhn, Florida; and several nieces and nephews. She also “adopted” the Flores family and thoroughly enjoyed helping the children with their homework.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 47 years, on Dec. 22, 2013; and an infant brother, Richard Kuhn.

Funeral and interment services were held privately in Missouri. Memorials in her name may be made to a charity of the donor’s choice. Arrangements were made by Schneider-Leucht-Merwin & Cooney Funeral Home.
