She was 85. She began writing and editing news stories for The Ark - then owned independently by Tiburon resident James B. McClatchy of McClatchy publishing company fame - in the mid-1970s, covering the school board and writing features under then-editor Brad Breithaupt while also holding down a job as a substitute teacher in Sausalito and Mill Valley.
