Her career as a dedicated civil servant in Accounting and Finance both at Lockheed Aircraft Corporation and Dobbins Air Force Base spanned more than 30 years. When she retired, she eventually moved to Buckhead, in Morgan County. After her retirement, she enjoyed sharing time and activities with her children and grandchildren, attending her church and Bible study group, and frequent visits to the Morgan County senior center.
