She was then trained as a pediatric nurse at the New York Foundling Hospital. Ronnie put her career on hold to get married, start her family, and move to the Jersey Shore. She was a life- long resident of Spring Lake Heights where she lovingly raised her two children. Ronnie was extremely proud of her Irish heritage. She was the long- time manager of the Irish Centre in Spring Lake and Annapolis, MD. Cead Mile Failte (a hundred thousand welcomes) is truly how she lived her life.
