My Story

Now in my 75th year, I’m "ReFired"!

That’s NOT vintage retirement. This chapter includes more fun with my new husband, Charlie; family and friends; fitness; writing, and art; plus assisting selected nonprofits.

I'm also writing about legacy storytelling--letters, poems, and stories. Still penning pieces about widows and money, too. 

Since my book was published (about 80,000 copies in circulation), I've moved forward in many ways. So can you if you've also experienced widowhood. Thanks to those professionals and friends assisting my "widowed sisters." I hope you find the tools and articles on this site helpful.
