She raised a family and loved to entertain many pool parties to whomever showed up. Clambakes were the house specialty with a game of bocce on the side. She was a member of Mayflower Congregational Church in Kingston and enjoyed singing in the choir. Because singing was her passion, she joined the Mayflower Sweet Adeline’s of Plymouth for over 30 years competing successfully in a quartet and chorus along with handling costume design and director of makeup.  She loved to be outside at all times either jogging through town or finding therapy in gardening.
