She was a longtime resident of Auburn and a graduate of Mount Carmel class of 1962. She went on to raise her family before starting her career in home decorating throughout many counties. She spent several years working for Sears and was proud of her many accomplishments within their organization. Her proudest moments were spent being a Mom and grandmother and the time she spent with family. It’s what was most important to her. Her last several years were spent in Florida where she met Dave and together they started a beautiful life together. Her latest journey was back to Auburn upon Dave’s retirement to be closer to her family.
