Then...       and       Now

School/College Highlights- Earned a BA from Russell Sage College in 1959. I majored in Retail Marketing. Post graduate courses at NYU leading to a high school level teaching certification.

Marriage and Family - I married Mort Stoltze in 1962. We have 3 children, Susan, Steven and Daniel. Susan graduated from Pratt Institute with a BA in Interior Architecture and is now a Project Manager at IBM's Innovation Center in Manhattan. Steve graduated from Syracuse University with a BS in Marketing. He lives in Nyack and is President of Edroy Products. He manufactures headborne magnifiers and distributes them world wide. Daniel has a BA in Physics from Franklin and Marshall and an OD from Suny School of Optometry. He lives in Baltimore and has followed in his grandfather's footsteps becoming an optometrist.

Career Highlights- I worked in the retail publishing field writing fashion articles in NY City after graduation. While raising my children I taught remedial math at the Jr. High in Clarkstown under a Title One Program. I now work for my son Steve as office manager here in Nyack.

Travel/Vacation- My husband and I spend 3-4 months in the winter in our condo in Puerto Rico. Otherwise we travel fairly extensively, often to Europe. We've been on 2 bicycling trips in France, and one on the Erie Canal in upstate NY and one in Montreal. We've also vacationed in Mexico, Alaska, Italy, France, England, the Scandinavian countries, Hungary, Austria and many Caribbean Islands.

Anything Else- For the last several years I've been President of the Board of Trustees of the Edward Hopper Preservation Foundation. The boyhood home of the renowned American artist is now a showcase for monthly artists exhibits. The Art Center at 82 North Broadway, Nyack is open Sat. and Sun. afternoons, so stop by while you're in town.

My husband Mort and I now have four grandchildren, and it's great having them. I can't believe that it took until I was 70 years old.
