Telephone directories list her from 1977 to 1980 at 16 Dedworth Manor, Maidenhead Road, Windsor, Berkshire, and from 1982 to 1984 at 9 Rays Avenue, Windsor.

She died, aged 51 years, on 21 December 1988 whilst working as a flight attendant aboard Pan AM Flight 103 travelling from London (Heathrow) Airport to John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York City, when it exploded over Lockerbie, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, and was survived by her sister, Lillian Villaneuva.

She is also commemorated on the memorial cairn in Arlington National Cemetery, 1 Memorial Avenue, Arlington, Arlington County, Virginia, USA, as well as on both the Memorial to all the Victims and the World Wings International plaque that are at Dryfesdale Cemetery, Dumfries Road, Lockerbie, DG11 1HZ.
