She then returned to employment with the Suffolk County Department of Social Services for several years before starting her 28-year career as guidance secretary at Mattituck High School. In addition to sending out endless college applications each year, she was a very dedicated employee and touched the lives of so many co-workers and students alike.
She was a loving wife and mother and enjoyed spending family time together. Her hobbies were many, although she loved to can and freeze her home-grown vegetables and fruit. She enjoyed doing crossword puzzles, jumble, watching Who wants to be a Millionaire and watching the Met’s games on TV.
