I married Joe D’Auria, (class of 1955) in 1958.

We spend our winters at Naples Heritage Golf Community in Naples, Florida and the rest of the year in our home town, 7 Park Place, (P.O. Box 7), Sparkill, NY 10976.

After Joe graduating from Tusculum College in Greeneville, TN, we moved to LaPuente, California and Joe started his teaching career. (1959 - 1962.) We returned to Sparkill in 1962 and Joe taught at North Rockland School District for the remainder of his career, totaling 31 years. During the last six years of teaching we operated the Rotella Golf Course in North Rockland for a total of eleven years.

On a more personal note, we have six children, three daughters and three sons. In order of birth:

We total 13 grandchildren. As a family we are extremely blessed. The furthest away geographically is two hours. Therefore, we are together often and enjoy every minute of it. A yearly vacation to the beach or the mountains, of 25 people, has become a tradition we all look forward to.
