Well-loved and respected by her colleagues, she chaired the English Department at Gunning Bedford Middle School for many years. She also taught English at James H. Groves Adult High School in Newark, from which she derived much satisfaction. An avid reader, she was smart, sensitive, caring, and fun to be with. She will be missed.
