much pleasure in seeing her students develop and learn. She loved to travel, and she
served as a sponsor on several student trips to Europe. She was a big fan of Pirate sports
as well as the Reds, IU, and the Colts. She loved to play games and had a large collection

her golfing skills, but for the friends in the Monday Night Ladies League. For several
years, she took an active role on the leadership team at Art on the Square Gallery.
