Member of the Silver Stringers
Contributor to the Melrose Mirror
I was born in Melrose on May 25, 1923. I graduated from Melrose High School, class of 1940, and from Malden Business School, Class of 1942. I attended Boston University, Evening Division Liberal Arts College, from 1960 to 1964.
Hobbies include Travel, knitting, crocheting, sewing, reading, square dancing, folk dancing, Scottish Country dancing and painting.
I was a Legal Secretary most of my working years, working in Malden and Boston. I was a charter member of the Boston Legal Secretaries Association, held several offices in the Boston Chapter as well as the Massachusetts Chapter, and was registration chairperson when the National Association of Legal Secretaries held its convention in Boston.
I retired in December of 1990 after twenty-eight years with the law firm of Hutchins & Wheeler in Boston.
Since retirement I studied the History of Art and Oil Painting at Bunker Hill Community College and currently am taking a class in Pastel Portraits at the Senior Center in Lynnfield. I am also enrolled in a Line Dancing Class at the Milano Senior Center in Melrose.
I just recently joined the Melrose Silver Stringers.
