She retired from Smith Turf and Irrigation.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of over 40 years Clarence Callis; son Mitchell Callis.

She is survived by her children Dennis Oeser, Derek (Patty) Oeser, Joe (Marsha) Callis, Jon Callis, DeeAnn (Brad) Logan; brother David “Bub” (Pam) Anderson; grandchildren Douglas Oeser, Anderson Wells, Cody Wells, Gage Oeser, Ruby Oeser, Matthew Callis, and Colleen Miller; great grandchildren David, Hadley, Hayden, and Duke; and her beloved pup Sweetie Pie.
