Boots was employed at Ludwig’s Photo Studio over 20 years as a photo retoucher. Later working at Bethesda Care Center as an aide and in Activities until her retirement. She was extremely artistic and creative putting her talents to use in both positions.

She loved singing, art, history, poetry, and like most grandparents, thought her grandkids were the cutest. Boots and Toots loved to get dressed up and go dancing, the bigger the hair the better! Family time playing cards brought her the fondest memories.  Most important was her relationship with Christ.

    I worked with Boots many years ago at Ludwig's in Laramie. She was always very kind and supportive of me. She advised me on makeup, hair and even showed me how she retouched photos. I have always had very good memories of Boots. May God hold her in him embrace.
