I retired in 1999 from Hendricks Chapel at Syracuse University where I served as Assistant to the Dean. In North Carolina I have been a tutor and also served on the Board of the Blue Ridge Literacy Council. I am a charter member with FAHA and I also have served and continue to serve on several committees with Fletcher United Methodist Church. I’ve also served in an instrumental way with Fletcher Community Chorus and helped guide the organization through the 501 (c) (3) process. I am the mother of 4 daughters and have 6 grandchildren. I’ve been married to David Farnsworth for 49 years.
