She taught in the Fayette County School System for 35 years. She also taught in the Weekday Education program at First Baptist Church in Fayetteville for many years. She was always a teacher when there were children around. She held an Educational Specialist degree from West Georgia College. She was a lifetime learner. One of her favorite students had recently sent her a very thoughtful note that came the day before her death. She touched the lives of so many people in her lifetime and will be missed greatly.
