Birth: Oct. 12, 1918
Suffolk County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Sep. 26, 1975
Suffolk County
Massachusetts, USA

First child of James L. and Alice (Napier). Sister of Margaret R. (Nolan), Catherine (Barry), James L. Bates. She was known as one of the "Three Redheads" by everyone. She remained single and lived with and cared for her mother until her death. She was a business woman and worked for NASA during the space race.

She was much loved by her family and friends and was a very talented woman with crafts. She inspired everyone with her village under the Christmas tree that she learned from her mother. She was devoted to her 11 nieces and nephews and her 3 tier presents covered with ribbons were greeted with much anticipation and the Chimneys filled with gifts on Christmas Eve.

She lived in Savin Hill during her early life and Hyde Park in later years. She died much too soon at 58 from scleroderma after a 3 month illness.
