She was born on January 18, 1927 to Carl and Tillie Palm in Detroit, MI. She was the fourth of five children in a first generation Swedish family.

She received her B.S. in Chemistry from Northwestern University in Chicago, IL and was one class short of a Masters in Chemistry. She began her career as a research scientist with the government and ended as a supervisor in the military's drug testing lab in Maryland.

She is survived by her two children, Erica Wendel-Oglesby of Placitas, NM, Chris Wendel of Palm Beach Gardens, FL, her only grandchild Christopher Wendel of Wellington, FL and her grandkitty, Cali of Placitas, NM.

Her cheerfulness, smile and eagerness to continue walking will be missed by those she touched including her aides, nurses, dining room staff, physical therapists, family and her La Vida Llena friends.
