She dedicated 36 years of teaching, volunteering and mentoring the students of Big Sandy. She was a no nonsense teacher who wanted her students to all be successful and reach their full potential.

She was a steward for God and a pillar of the Big Sandy Baptist Church who served and put others before herself. She volunteered with the Girl Scouts and the Boy Scouts of America for many years.
Her passion was planning road trips and seeing the world. She was able to take each of her grandkids on their Senior trip while battling Cancer.
Her battle with Cancer did not stop her from living the life God gave her.
Her strength, courage, love, peace, kindness, dignity and joy came from her faith in following Godís directions for her life. This is what she made sure we all knew and saw in her; Godís love, salvation and faith.
