She was raised and educated in Medford where she later met her husband Alfred A. Marrocco. In 1952, they were married in a double ring wedding ceremony along with her brother Robert Bateman who married her husband Alfred’s sister.

Her many talents included knitting, sewing and crocheting. She made an assortment of dresses and gowns for her daughters, drapes for her home and sweaters for her children and grandchildren, which they so fondly remember.
