Her later years were spent in Boca Raton, Fla., where she golfed and started a second career as an artist, painting and exhibiting at her first art show in 2008.  

Monteferrario is survived by her husband of 46 years, John, her children, Todd Monteferrario and Tracey (Mark) Rubenstein, and her grandchildren, Daniella and Tessa. Todd Monteferrario is secretary-treasurer of NSTA, and he works at First Student Inc. in North Haledon, N.J.
