Upon retirement, she and Bob moved to Sanbornton, NH where they enjoyed all that New Hampshire had to offer, including boating on Lake Winnisquam, golfing at Lake View and Den Brae Golf Clubs, and snowmobiling in Pittsburg, NH. She also bowled with the St. Andrew’s Sodality league for many years and enjoyed crocheting, reading, watching the Red Sox and Bruins, and traveling with Bob. She was a communicant of St. Andrew’s Church, N. Billerica and St. Andre Bessette Parish (Sacred Heart Church), Laconia, NH.
