She and Ralph were married in Latham, NY before moving to Hawaii where Ralph was stationed in Pearl Harbor with the Navy. They returned to Wynantskill, NY where they raised their two loving children. Her children will remember fond moments with her, such as teaching Elyce to play piano and taking Jonathan camping. She retired from NYS Department of Transportation where she grew her career for over 30 years and made many friends.
