Pinta Bossung leaves Villanova for California

After 17 years as a part-time library monitor and door checker, Pinta Bossung will leave Falvey Memorial Library and her full-time real estate career for a new life in California. Originally from New York, she has decided to settle on the West Coast where she can spend more time with her four adult children and five grandchildren, most of whom live within an hour’s drive of each other.

Pinta and her husband, Charlie, have been in Pennsylvania since 1965 but are looking forward to living in Sacramento where they can walk to stores and drive short distances to see the state capitol, wine country and other highlights of the region. Their new Sacramento neighborhood is known as the “Fabulous Forties,” an area of eclectic architectural styles that Nancy Reagan deemed more livable than the California governor’s mansion. Once they are settled in their new home, Pinta plans to look for a position in a nearby university, art gallery or antique shop.

We wish her all the best!
