She was born November 26, 1917, in Ogden, Utah to Levi C. and Clarissa May McLean. She was the ninth of ten children and her sister, Verda Larsen of Alexandria, Virginia, survives her.

Our entire family wishes to thank the following individuals and organizations for their love, patience and care for our Mother: Dr. Nancy Zega and her staff Diane and Joann; the Directors and Staff of Country Pines Assisted Living and IHC Hospice.
      Remember me when flowers bloom
      Early in the spring
      Remember me on sunny days
      In the fun that summer brings
      Remember me in the fall
      As you walk through the leaves of gold
      And in wintertime - remember me
      In the stories that are told
      But most of all remember
      Each day - right from the start
      I will be forever near
      For I lived within your heart
      - Judith Karen Bulock
