She had been a board member for many years with the Peruville Cemetery.  She was an active member of the former Lansing Singing Swinging Sweethearts group.  She was known to liven up a gathering with her accordion playing and quick wit.  
She is survived by her nieces and nephews, Randy Allen, Fred Howe, Rod Howe and Darlene Saunders as well as several great nieces and nephews and her sister in law Marion Howe.  Her niece Donna Taylor and nephew Dick Howe predeceased her.  Besides her parents she was predeceased by her siblings, Raymond and Roderick "Herb" Howe and Mary Howe.
