She was a graduate of Springfield Technical High School in Springfield, Massachusetts. Twenty years later she earned a B.A. from California State University, Northridge followed by a Master's degree in History from University of California, Los Angeles. Subsequent work on her doctoral dissertation occurred at Fordham University, New York and University of California, Davis.

Our mother enjoyed reading, traveling, genealogy, and her pets.

The family thanks her neighbor, Joseph Kuntz, who helped her so much this past year. His thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated.

Per her wishes, she has been cremated and will be interred later this year in Camarillo, CA at the Conejo Mountain Cemetery.
