She graduated from Katherine Gibbs College, New York City and was an executive administrator with CommonWealth and Southern, New York City. Her faith made a bold impression on all who knew her, and those of us who loved her will miss her very much. She was the dearest, most generous mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother anyone could ever be blessed with! She was kind, loving and always ready to lend a helping hand. She instantly brought a smile to your face and warmth to your heart. Knowing her taught you to love deeply and treat others with integrity and respect. She carried on her husband’s legacy of keeping the family laughing with stories of life, love, and happy times. She will be sorely missed and never forgotten. We love you and forever will miss your beautiful smile.
