She was a retired RN.  She volunteered for Greece Volunteer Ambulance, the American Red Cross, Special Olympics, and Swain Ski Patrol.

As a nurse, she worked in high risk obstetrics and geriatrics. She also had personal experience as a breast cancer survivor.   Her background made her a fierce advocate for women’s health.

She was a proud grandparent and was happy to show pictures of the grandkids. She was also a voracious reader and always had a book with her.

She will be greatly missed.
