Her work is contained in many public and private collections in the United States, Canada, Sweden, Germany, Croatia, France, Japan and Argentina.

Locally, she is known for her Bart Conner sculpture at Sam Viersen Gymnastics Center at OU, Amelia Earhart bust at Science Museum Oklahoma, Henry Overholser bust at Overholser Mansion, “The Tree of Life” at Mercy Medical Center and her torch sculpture at Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation.

She is survived by her husband of 65 years; her daughter Betsy Alaupovic Hyde of Oklahoma City; and two grandsons, Homer Clark Hyde, of Chicago, and Robert Alexander Hyde and his wife, Mary, of Cleveland, Ohio.

The family suggests that contributions be made in her memory to the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 415 Couch Drive, Oklahoma City, OK 73102.
