In later years they lived at Goddard House in Brookline, Massachusetts, and she recently moved to Sherrill House in Boston.

A devoted wife and mother, she was also an accomplished cook. She created “Olympic Seoul Chicken,” a recipe that won the 1988 Delmarva Chicken Cooking Contest and remains popular on thousands of cooking websites.
