She was a member of New Liberty Baptist Church, where she loved music and to sing. She was retired from Cooper Tire with over 20 years of service. She also worked at Weyerhaeuser for over 10 years prior to that. She would also sell home interior products in her spare time, traveling across the country and even into Canada making sales. She also loved making flower arrangements and wreaths for people in the community. She absolutely loved her dogs, Daisy and Big Boy. In her free time, she enjoyed sewing, tending to her flowers, and working in her vegetable garden. She also loved cooking, and was known for making the best chicken and dumplings.
