She was a graduate of New Carlisle High School and Indiana University, BloomingtonShe was noted for her intelligence (she was valedictorian of her High School and a member of the national education honorary Phi Lambda Beta in college) as well as her beauty (she was the Indiana University Homecoming Queen and Miss Indiana University in 1955). She taught school for several years, and then raised her and Cole’s two children. She was very sociable and loved spending time and chatting with her many friends. She and Cole lived in several locations around the U.S., including Indiana, Ohio, Minnesota, Florida and Texas. She and Cole travelled extensively, including throughout Europe, the Caribbean and China. She is survived by her son John (Betsy) LaMaster, daughter Kathy (ML Taylor) LaMaster, as well as numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
