She enjoyed traveling and had fond memories of her trips to Ireland, Scotland and a service trip to Peru where, despite not knowing the language, touched the lives of many of the villagers with her smile and gentle ways.

Nottage, Michael Andrews, Allyson Pelley, William Spaulding, Joseph P. Cronin and William Silvester. She was the great grandmother of Elijah Lewis and Adrian Nottage.
