Loved to visit Newport, see Ocean Drive and walk on Cliff Walk. Also liked to visit Watch Hill Rhode island.
Worked at many of the major historical Rhode Island jewelry companies including Trifari's where she met Margaret Santuri (1918-2009) who later became Godmother to James R. Pannozzi, her only son.
