They were blessed to have been married 70 years, living in San Diego, CA., Dayton,OH., El Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain, and El Paso, TX. In 2018 a move to assisted living brought them closer to family in Lexington, KY. Morning Pointe was home 2018-2019 and then Willows at Fritz Farm 2019 till present. Because she was rarely seen without her sun glasses, the loving staff at the Willows called her Hollywood.
