She moved to Hot Springs, Ark. to care for her father and worked as a machine operator at Lake Catherine Shoe Factory for 12 years.
After moving back to Lamar in 1984, she was an active volunteer, helping whenever and wherever she saw a need and was recognized as Lamar B&PW Club Woman of the Year in 1989. She was a member of Oakton United Methodist Church.
