Died peacefully at home in Washington on December 19, 2012, beside her beloved husband of 61 years, Bob. Also survived by her six children, David, Patti, Bobby, Paul (Francesca), Leslie (Rob), and Laura (Gill); her grandchildren, Madeleine, Robert, Michael, and Elena; and her sisters, Margie Stoy and Fritzi Thielen. Predeceased by her granddaughter Gina. Lived in Vienna, Munich, Bombay, Beirut, Paris, and Rome, her favorite city, which she and Bob returned to often. Worked as a librarian overseas and at the Kingsbury Center in Washington. Loved cooking, the New York Times crossword, music, and the felicitous use of the English language.
