She had a long and distinguished career in economics that included Commissioner of the Financial Institutions Bureau for the State of Michigan, Professor of Finance at Central Michigan University, John M. Olin, Distinguished Fellow at the University of Arizona and various directorships. Her most notable position was the appointment as a Governor of the Federal Reserve by President Ronald Regan.
She was preceded in death by her brother, Courtland and nephew, Bradford. She is survived by her sister, Susan; sister-in-law, Catherine; niece, Janice Meyer (Bill); niece, Christine Kharrazi (Navid); great-nephew, Alec and great-niece, Madeline.
A graveside service will be held at Oakwood Cemetery in Adrian, MI for family and close friends.
