She graduated from Danville High School in the Class of 1948 and was a lifelong member of Lexington Avenue Baptist Church. She worked for many years for Production Credit Association which became Ag Credit. She enjoyed playing cards and was very adept at solving crossword puzzles. She had a sharp and sometime sarcastic wit. 

Even though she had no children of her own she loved and mothered her nieces and nephews. We want to extend a special thank you to everyone at The Willows and Heritage Hospice for their kindness and excellent care.
