Upon graduation from High School, she became an independent career woman in the Fashion/Clothing Industry in Manhattan lasting her entire working life. After leaving New York, she lived a short time in California before moving to Spring Hill, FL in 1991. She can be best described as an attractive, self-sufficient New Yorker who was a world traveler and an avid reader. She thoroughly enjoyed fine dining and leisure activities. Her most important events were her 80th birthday party and her many international trips. Her favorite music was the music of her youth, Big Bands. One of her favorite artists was Frank Sinatra, especially his renditions of “My Way” and “New York, New York”. During her free time she belonged to an Investment Club and a Bocce Team. She is survived by many loving cousins and friends.
