Tulip while working at Sauk County Health Care Center returned to school and graduated from MATC Madison. She continued at Sauk County Health Care in her new role as a Nurse.  She furthered her career by expanding into industrial nursing at Grede Foundries.  Her outstanding human qualities led her to become the HR Director over the largest complex in the Dells.

In 2010, she retired with her husband to Mexico Beach, Florida.  Her photographical talents won her awards and praise.  Her farm roots were always present in her landscaping and gardening. She spent her time between Wisconsin and Florida until 2017 when she returned to Wisconsin to be with family and friends.

Thanks to Dean and SSM nurses, doctors and staff provided excellent health care to Tulip. A special thank you goes to the IC Unit for their compassionate care for Tulip in her final moments.
