She almost made it to 100 and seemed to live life very well. Bon voyage! M Sprague

According to Wikipedia: "She married Dick Hirschland, a mountaineer, in 1935. Their honeymoon ascent of the Matterhorn in Switzerland was her first introduction to climbing. She first climbed in the Gunks in 1936 with her husband along with Fritz Wiessner and Hans Kraus." I think that's awesome. Lorenzo Tragen
