Mrs. Greenwald was a 1957 graduate of Atherton High School and was a life-long Louisville resident. She attended the University of Miami. Later in life, she was a part-time resident of Longboat Key.

In Louisville, Mrs. Greenwald is best remembered as one of the founding partners of Rita ’N’ Peggy’s Choices, a jewelry-and-accessories boutique in Chenoweth Square for nearly 25 years. She was active in the community by volunteering with the Jewish Hospital Women’s Guild and the United Way. She was a member of the Standard Country Club, the Longboat Key Club, the National Council of Jewish Women and the congregations of the Temple and Keneseth Israel, in Louisville.
