She served on many boards throughout her lifetime and most recently was on the board at Congregation Beth Shalom, Congregation Beth Shalom Sisterhood, and Newcomers of Dover. She was a mentor for Connecting Generations, volunteer for the the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition and a Life Member of Hadassah. She was our little Energizer Bunny and will be greatly missed.
