She retired from Nichols Homeshield after 37 years of service. She was a tool and die maker and was proud of her talents.
She and Michele came to the United States with very little; they arrived from war torn Europe and they both worked very hard to achieve all that they had. Her greatest achievement and joy in life was her family.
Her memberships include the church, Ladies of the Moose, LULAC and the Owl Club at Nichols.
