She taught music appreciation at the Putnam School District and later at Freeport School in Long Island, where she directed the chorus along with her many other duties as a teacher.
 She married Thomas McGuire and they resided in Scranton, Pa., for many years.
 In Scranton, she was a volunteer at the local hospital and received several awards for her long and devoted service to her community. Mrs. McGuire was an outstanding artist who had her own one-person show in Scranton. She did many oil paintings, including portraits and landscapes.

Mrs. McGuire instructed her niece, Susan (Terry) Yelle, who attended her through her many years of illness, that her services were to be private and at the convenience of the family.  Interment will be in the spring at Our Lady of Angels Cemetery in Whitehall.
The family has suggested that contribution’s may be made in her name to a charity of one’s choice.
