She graduated from Suffield High School with the Class of 1947 and was employed for 36 years at the Hamilton Standard Division of United Technologies Corporation in Windsor Locks as a Provisioning Clerk before transferring to the International Sales & Marketing Group as an International Licensee Analyst until her retirement in 1991.
