Mrs. Setaro has lived in New York, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire and North Carolina. Charlotte is her most favorite place to live and New Hampshire was her least favorite because of the cold and snow. It wasn't unusual for us to get 35 feet or more of snow from one storm. Her elementary school there had an after school ski club for the students.
Mrs. Setaro has a son, Rich and a daughter, Jennifer. Her first two grandchildren, Braden and Anderson, were born this past spring just seven days apart. That made for a very exciting week and now she is having lots of fun watching them grow and spoiling them. She loves being a grandmother.
In her free time Mrs. Setaro likes going to the beach, reading (of course), gardening and playing with Braden and Anderson. Some day she would like to be able to move to the beach to live.
