After her husband’s Germany tour, they moved to back to Alexandria, VA where she continued working for the Dept. of Defense until retirement. During retirement, her and her husband built their dream home in Annapolis on the Chesapeake bay. After retirement, she continued to be active- working part-time at Best Connection travel, which gave her the opportunity to travel to many countries. Her favorite was Singapore. She was also on the Art’s committee at Quiet Water’s Park in Annapolis, MD, where she won many awards for her service. She loved watching her two grandson’s take sailing lessons at SSA and race in local regattas. She hardly missed her early morning walks with her lady friends in the neighborhood, enjoyed her Pilates and yoga workout at the Senior Center.
