She was a graduate of Wellsburg High School Class of 1938 and Elmira Business Institute in 1940. Upon the birth of her children her focus was her family. When they were ready for high school, she worked for a local law firm and later at the Elmira Psychiatric Center business office until retiring at 71. Following retirement, she enjoyed collecting dolls, decorating her Victorian home, and entertaining family and friends. Her interest in family history was based on her ancestors being among the first settlers in the Chemung Valley who arrived in the late 1780s.
Much appreciation is extended to Dr. Lorrie Penfield and Dr. Robert Madden for their many years of care and to special friends, Carol D., Sue S., Bonnie H. and Michael B.
