She lived in Colorado, New Mexico, Mis- souri, Alaska and various places in California including the Feather River Canyon, Coming, and Sacramento; but Quincy was always where she came home. Eventually her health re- quired moving to the Valley and an easier life, but she al- ways asked her visitors about Quincy -- specifically about many of her friends, and al- ways about how much snow there was at various times over the winter. Her greatest love was her family, particularly her boys. She was happiest observing them enjoying life together.
