She and Ron raised their family in Terryville, Conn. Employment included: Terryville town clerk secretary, O.Z. Gedney Credit Union manager and most importantly, loving, dedicated mother of three. She was very active in Terryville Congregational Church, serving as a Sunday school teacher/superintendent and on various church committees.
