She was successful at several occupations in life. She worked as a secretary at the University of Alabama, worked for Brice Hospital in Alabama, Westinghouse in Alabama, Bechtel Nuclear Power plant (Grand Gulf) in Port Gibson and Durst Drugs in Vicksburg.

She had a knack for decorating. Her house was filled with love in every inch. She loved working in her yard and gardening. She loved the movie “Gone With the Wind.”

She loved buttons and wondered about the person who might have worn them before she found them.

She was a caring, loving, and giving person. She loved to meet people. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother “The Best of Each.” She was the greatest wife you could ask for and the greatest mom any child could have.
