After retiring to Alameda, she continued to read voraciously, take classes, attend opera and theater, and cherish the community at Grace North Church. She is survived by her daughter Cathy; sons Greg and Paul; grandson Maxfield, and granddaughter Shannon. Her wit, passion, and intelligence will be deeply missed.
