She has three wonderful sons, one daughter and five grandchildren. After she received the Master of Library Science degree, the kiddos treated her to an unforgettable trip to Lugano, Switzerland, where she spent two weeks with dear friends she met years ago in Victoria, British Columbia. While in Switzerland, she had the opportunity to visit Hermann Hesse’s burial site in the cemetery of San Abbondio in Montagnola, Switzerland. She has done her share of traveling and would like to do more. She lived in the Bay Area in the 1960s and traveled to Bermuda, which is where she met and had her picture taken with President Jimmy Carter.
