She enjoyed classical music and was a frequent attendee of the Newark Symphony Orchestra concerts. She attended Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Newark since 1963 and for a few years enjoyed tutoring children in local elementary schools after her retirement. We thank the good people of Laurelwood Nursing Home, Caraway Manor and Hospice for the exceptional care they provided these last several years.
