She lived a very full, busy and vibrant life until illness in 2021. She traveled widely with both family and friends. She grew up in New York City and was a graduate of Hunter College. She had a fulfilling career as a teacher, then as a school guidance counselor and family and marriage counselor. She then retired and moved to South Florida. When her husband died, she moved to Maryland to be closer to her family. But she always considered herself a lifelong New Yorker. In her 90s, she served as an elections judge in Florida and as a Guardian ad Litem.
