She was passionate about animal welfare and was active in the Miniature Greyhound Rescue Society. There will be a private family service in West Hartford, Connecticut, on Sunday, January 19th, 2020. The family requests that people make donations to support the Warrensburg Humane Society in lieu of sending flowers.
