She was an avid singer, singing in the Sacred Heart Church Choir, the Holly Hilltones, and for more than 35 years with the St. John Church Choir in Darien. Singing, cooking, baking, traveling, and spending time with family were a few of her true passions.

A special thanks to all who filled “Ninny’s” last months with calls and visits and to the Constellation Hospice team for all your support. You will never know how much you all meant to her.
