She was deeply involved in her church and loved her church family beyond measure at Parker Street Missionary Baptist Church and later at Calvary Baptist Church .  She was a very giving person having given her existence to her Lord and Savior, Jesus, first, then her family, and especially her boys.  She gave by working concession stands when needed.  She gave by being the morning hostess at the Senior Center when asked. She gave when she was needed at church in numerous capacities.

She worked for over 30 years at the ASCS Office of the Department of Agriculture helping the farmers and ranchers of Palo Pinto County.  Many of them held her in high regard through the years.

She will be dearly and greatly missed by countless individuals too numerous to mention who knew and loved her.
