Arriving in New York City, they stayed briefly meeting her father there and later the family traveled to Boston’s North End.

In 1941, the family moved to North Everett into their own home. In 1942 she graduated from Michael Angelo High School and then worked in the Boston area as a seamstress. She had many suitors and eventually married in June of 1945 to a highly decorated aviator, Mr. John LoRusso, who had returned home from the European air war. After honeymooning in Northern New England, the couple was transferred to the US Army Air Corp base at Sioux Falls, South Dakota for eventual departure to the west coast.

Gradually, over time, several realty properties were acquired and managed successfully.

At Everett’s Seniors Club, she was active in elder affairs, a member of the Everett/Malden Orsogna Club she was involved with immigrant concerns, at the Schiavo Club she organized travel ventures around the country, and with the Melrose VFW Armory Post, she was an advocate for disabled veterans.
