She graduated from South High School and later married Donald Eugene Drage on January 29, 1938 in Salt Lake City Utah. She was a member of the Presbyterian Church.

She had a very spiritual love for God and a desire to reunite with her loving husband, our dad, Donald Eugene Drage; her daughter, Deanna and all of her brothers and sisters who went before her. She was a very special lady who will truly be missed.
Thank you mom for all of the love you showed each of us.
