They lived and raised their family in Schiller Park, IL for forty-one years and retired to Sandwich, IL in 2004.

Sharon worked at East Leyden High School on the clerical and library staff and created braille materials for the blind. She was a talented piano player despite being afflicted with polio as a child during the War. Mom was a fierce Scrabble opponent, voracious reader and crossword puzzle worker. She was a natural baker with a life-long sweet tooth. Her desserts were requested by many and generously donated to her church and community.
