She is also a member of the Local, State, and National 600 Clubs.
She also received a 50-Year Participation Award from WISBA for 50 years of bowling in the state tournament.
Her personal career highs include a 258 game, a 649 series, and a high year-end average of 172. Her bowling career ended for health reasons.
