It was an honor to have worked with her. She graciously participated in the Ravinia Neighbors Story Corps Project with other Ravinia School Alumni. We had to begin a second session as the 45 minute recording time passed quickly: 1: archive.storycorps.org/interviews/r-2/ and 2: archive.storycorps.org/interviews/ravinia-school/
