Born July 14, 1948 to Arthur and Barbara (Watkins) Hesselman, she grew up in Canton, Ohio, summered in Fair Haven, NY and moved to Rochester in her early 20’s to be closer to her beloved summer home. After getting her Master’s Degree from St. John Fisher College at the age of 50, she became a Reading Specialist and taught in the Penfield School District for 9 years. The final summer of her life was spent at Fair Haven on the water surrounded by her loving family and friends.
