Born in Kansas City, Mo on May 10, 1928, she was the daughter of the late Norris and Carolyn Paxton. She was raised in Albany, N.Y. and graduated from Syracuse University, where she majored in journalism and was a proud member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority.

She moved to Darien in 1970 and spent years in Norwalk and Westport as well. She retired as editor of the former Darien News Review and Westport News, a newspaper she worked at for more than 25 years.

She loved mentoring new journalists in the field. Away from work she loved sailing, traveling and was an avid bridge player. She also looked forward every summer to her vacation at Eagle Camp in South Hero, Vt. Here she would meet up with many long time friends and family for a few weeks on Lake Champlain.

Real Estate Report: Not Enough New Homes

By Judy Szablak

Just over 26 percent of all available homes for sale in Westport are under five years old. Interesting dilemma seeing that many buyers are clamoring for new construction, or newly built homes. Image

There are just not enough newer homes to meet demand, and buyers sometimes feel that they have to settle for an older home, which really shouldn’t be the case.

In fact, out of the 190 homes currently on the market that were built prior to 2000, many of them have a great flow that is quite relevant to today’s floor plans and lifestyle needs.

Often times, homes that were built in the 1960s or ‘70s are passed over initially because a buyer wants something newer. However it is important to remember that the majority of these homes have been remodeled , and some of them from top to bottom.

WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 6 Pequot Trail Image
An application for a permit to demolish the house at Westport’s 6 Pequot Trail, off Sylvan Road North, is in process. Built in 1951, the 1-3/4-story cape has 1,895 square feet and is situated on a 1.3-acre property.  Because the house was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Westport Historic District Commission.
