The Family Outreach Center (FOCus) in Rhode Island received the benefit of her cheery presence as a Pre-K head teacher for a number of years. In her retirement she continued Mercy ministry by volunteering as a visitor at Cherry Hill Manor. Her family and friends will miss her bubbly personality and kind Mercy presence.
