            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Franklin County, Christopher C. Foy, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Doyle, J., and Danilson, S.J.  Opinion by Doyle, J.  (10 pages)

            Karen De Groote appeals the district court’s ruling removing her as trustee of her father’s trust and ordering her to pay part of the attorney’s fees of the beneficiaries that filed the petition.  OPINION HOLDS: Because good cause existed to remove Karen as the trustee, and because the court did not abuse its discretion in ordering Karen to pay part of the petitioners-beneficiaries’ attorney fees, we affirm the ruling of the district court in all respects.
