She met and married Jim and lived in Montgomery Alabama, Cold Spring Harbor New York and Waterbury Connecticut while Jim was a Headmaster. They retired to Cashiers in 1994.

She had a quick wit and loved to laugh. She was mother and grandmother to many whether you were related to her or not. A celebration of her life is planned for 11:00 am Saturday, February 23rd at Church of the Good Shepherd in Cashiers. It will be followed by a reception. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial gifts be made to Church of the Good Shepherd Outreach, PO Box 32, Cashiers, NC 28717.
