While living in Pine Bluff, she worked for Pine Bluff Sand and Gravel Co. from 1973 to 1993. She retired early due to poor health with rheumatoid arthritis.

She was always involved with her church wherever she lived. Teaching Sunday school classes, both youth and adult. Working with the youth, served on many committees, and was a “counter” of money on Monday morning after the offerings were taken on Sunday. She loved the Lord and her family dearly.

She enjoyed good music and was an avid reader. She loved to work puzzles (crossword, jig-saw, word search, etc.). In her early days when she was well, she enjoyed camping with the family, the children’s and grandchildren’s ball games and activities. She cherished the time she got to spend with the little great-grands and was known to the grands and great-grands as “GRAMS”.
