In 1965 she moved to Greensboro where she later became employed with Guilford County Mental Health and retired with 25 years of service.
Her number one goal in life was to lead others to Christ. She was loved and well respected by the members of Jubilee Christian Center where she served as a Deaconess.

She was adored by her grandchildren Christina (boy friend John Davies), Ashley (Colton), Katie, and Ben who affectionately called her “Mee-maw”.
