The daughter of the late Arthur V.A. and Berniece A. (Johnsen) Bjork. She was born on Christmas Day in 1954, and was raised in Medford, MA. She was a graduate of Medford High School with the class of 1973, and went on to study business at Bunker Hill Community College. She worked for many years building the family business, Emerson News Agency of Nashua, NH. In recent years she was employed by F.W. Webb in Manchester and Nashua, NH.
She had a flare for home renovation and loved a good project. If you needed something built, she was the person to ask. From her back deck to a new kitchen to bars and furniture, there was nothing she couldn’t do. She also enjoyed traveling, bird watching, nature and blues & jazz. Most importantly, she loved spending quality time with her family and friends, especially her five cherished grandchildren.
