She was a retired executive secretary to the CEO of Glendale Federal Bank in California. She was an avid pianist and played mostly by ear. When she was a little girl taking piano lessons, her piano teacher threw up her hands when she preferred to play everything by ear. She was very social and she never met a stranger.  She enjoyed traveling, any kind of puzzles, reading and of course playing her beautiful baby grand piano, which is now display at the Carrollton VA Hospital. She had great aspirations of being a Centenarian. She also took great pride in her cat KC.
