She earned a Bachelor Degree in Education from Barat College in Lake Forest, IL in 1955 and Master Degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan in 1963. While teaching was her profession for 16 years, friends, family and especially grandchildren can profess that she practiced teaching every day of her life; enriching others.
