Mitzi McColley Sorensen grew up surrounded by the Black Hills in Hot Springs, South Dakota. There are four generations of funeral directors in her family. Death was as much a part of her everyday life as breathing.  She attributes her quirky sense of humor, viewing life as a gift, and placing family first to her upbringing.

After attending Northern State College in South Dakota, she headed west with her husband to take care of her beloved grandmother who was suffering from Alzheimer’s. For the past thirty-two years, Petaluma, California has been her home where rolling vineyards replaced the majestic views of Mt. Rushmore.

Working her way up through the ranks in a pharmacy, she learned that the benefits of most drugs outweighed the possible side effects, and that her clients mellowed with age.

Retired after twenty plus years, she enjoys outings with her four children and their spouses, writing, traveling, reading, welding, and golfing with her husband, Mark, even though she yells fore more often than scoring a par four.  She keeps in shape by catching lizards and snakes with her nine grandsons and three granddaughters.
