Friday, June 10 at the age of 89. Born in Worcester, Mass., she graduated from Commerce H.S. She was predeceased by her parents (Russell F.

She is thankful for the ladies in her bridge groups, her friends/neighbors (especially JoAnn and Kate), past co-workers, and her life-long friend (Bette) known ever since kindergarten.
