She lived previously in Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona, before settling in Houston with her husband. She was a talented ceramicist and enamel artist, selling and exhibiting her work to galleries and institutions around the country. She was involved with the creation of the Saltzman Youth Panel in Cleveland that educates high school students in philanthropy.
