She operated a Bakery,thru out her early years, Then Made a special Paint that wouldn't chip when she tried to get a patent for it the Government stepped in and barred her from manufacturing it because it would last too long with out needing to be replaced or repainted. She ran a roadside Hot Dog stand selling her famous homemade Icecream ,foot long hot dogs and other fine foods.She operated and owned the Kays Foot Long Hot Dogs,and Pony Rink on Rt 6-11 when it was first put in.
She was highly intelligent even tho she had only a 4th grade education.
