We will never forget her. She was many things: a devoted wife and mother; a world traveler who visited over 20 countries; a generous and loving grandmother.
After almost 45 years of marriage centered around a brilliant and exacting husband, she overcame what was to her a devastating loss to make a new life.
She made friends wherever she went. She was a wonderful example to her grandchildren, who thought all grandmothers were independent and well-traveled She opened the world to them. They are her legacy.
