She graduated Stratford HS and kept in touch with her dear friend, Barbara Lombard. Barbara worked for the Avco Lycoming, Caldor and Unilever, IT help desks until her retirement. Barbara lived to make others happy, raising her children, and enjoyed her wonderful neighbor’s company, especially Jimmy, Kevin and Cooper.
