She worked for the former Western Electric for 30 years before retiring and then was a crossing guard at Spring Garden and Linden Sts., where she touched the lives of many young people for over 15 years; some of whom kept in touch with her even as adults starting their own families. She was an active member of Our Lady of Perpetual Help R. C. Church and served as an usher, attended Bible Study Group and was a member of the Seniors group. She was also a 35 year volunteer for Musikfest and an original volunteer for Zollner Arts Center, which were both very important to her.
