She was a devoted member of Mt Moriah Missionary Baptist Church, where she was active in W.M.A, serving as secretary and treasurer. She also taught Sunday School and served on the building and pulpit committees. She retired from the Jones County School system after being a bus driver for 25 years.

She spent her life raising generations of children, many who were not her own, caring for her family and friends. She was a friend to everyone who knew her.

She adored her grandchildren and great grand-children, and they all adored her back.
