She lived a fulfilled and blessed life with her husband, Bob Mollring, who built their family home in the mountains in Bear Valley Springs, for the retirement years. They enjoyed traveling, and joined a camping group for seniors, where they made many news friends, while exploring new places. Playing cards, reading, enjoying their beautiful animals and large family, they lived a full life in the mountains, close to the Mojave Desert.
