In her teens she and Raye both helped with the experiments at Stazione Zoologica.  She is now a retired teacher and runs an artists studio project – the Silk Mill in Somerset UK with her husband Damon. She has 3 adult sons, two of whom were born before JZ died and the third 5 weeks afterwards.  The science gene has so far skipped two generations!
