She served on the boards of Civic Music, Early Music Now, Kettle Moraine Garden Club and the Lake Area Free Clinic, among others. She was active with Bel Canto Chorus, Immanuel Presbyterian Church, First Congregational Church of Oconomowoc, Junior League, Service Club, AngelsGrace Hospice and the Oconomowoc Lake Club.
