She was born in Ft. Smith, Ark., a daughter of the late Elsie and Clyde Ramey. She grew up in Oakdale, where she graduated from Oakdale Union High School in 1955.

She started working for Lockheed Missile and Space Company in Sunnyvale, where she became one of the first female Professional Engineers in Quality Engineering. She transferred to the Austin, Texas facility in 1982, where she retired after 34 years with the company.
Mrs. Horn was the most thoughtful and caring friend, anyone could have and would drop everything to be there for them. Her faith ran very deep, her love of the church and its parishioners was demonstrated by the hours she volunteered by teaching Vacation Bible School and singing in the church choir.
What she is most remembered for is her deep love of her family. Family to her was everything and she cherished each and every one of them. Always remembering every birthday, holiday and anniversary and never forgot to tell each one of them how much she loved them. She was the world’s best wife, mom, grandma and great grandma, and will be dearly missed. She was a joy and inspiration to all who knew her.
