She lived on three continents plus the Azore Islands during her childhood and always loved to travel including visiting Alaska and Australia.

Bruce’s priority was to be a loving wife and mother. She and her husband lived in Bexley for 37 years, where they raised their two children, before moving to Marble Cliff.
