In 1963 the couple moved to Princeton, NJ, when Mr. Biro joined the RCA Space Center. In 1973 the couple bought a home in Lawrenceville, NJ where they resided for almost 50 years.
In 1970, Mr. Biro formed Biro Engineering, a consulting company focused on servicing the new formed Cable Television industry.
