She was a realtor with the Paul Semonin Co., a former assistant Studio Director for Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic, and a volunteer for the Audio Studio for the Reading Impaired in Anchorage, KY.

The visitation and memorial service will be held at Pearson’s Funeral Home followed by internment, with her beloved Harry and many dear friends, in the Memorial Garden at St, Matthews Episcopal Church 330 N.
