In 1977, she moved to Stamford to live with her daughter, Judy, son-in-law Gene, and her grandchildren Joe, Dan, Tom, and Andrea. She was a loving mother and grandmother and played a big role in helping raise her grandchildren, imparting on them the values of hard work, faith, and a good sense of humor.
