Besides being a caring mother and grandmother, she had a successful career in sales working over the years for Olan Mills, Sears and Avon. Eventually combining her love of yard selling with her penchant for sales into a resale store “Grandma's Attic”. In her retired years, Mom owned and managed several rental properties.

Mom enjoyed entertaining family and friends and was known as the “hostess with the mostest”. She also enjoyed camping, bike riding, bowling, sewing, furniture refinishing and reupholstering, and loved having and attending yard sales. She especially loved visits with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
