She graduated from Martin County High School in Stuart, Fla. She was a certified nurse’s aide for many years. She was a waitress for 30 years. Owners of the restaurants and customers loved her.

She was preceded in death by her parents John and Doris Grim, and family members on the Roberts side of the family. She loved them just as much as they loved her.
