She was involved with her churches both in Prineville and in Sweet Home.
She enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, tole painting, crochet-ing, working in the garden and reading.
Mrs. Klapprich is survived by her daughters, Karen Robertson of Mesquite, Nev., Cyndie Kalina of Sweet Home, and Billie Bustillos of Sandy Valley, Nev.; 11 grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Everett Klapprich, in 1991; daughter Michelle Griffin in 2010; four brothers; and two sisters.
The family will hold a private memorial later in the year.
