She attended Siloam Elementary School. After graduating from Ivanhoe High School in 1953, she worked in the home and in her family’s garden and orchard, never holding a job outside the home. She was a lifetime member of St. Paul P. H. Church.  Her church was not only the place where she faithfully worshiped her God; it was her main social outlet. She enjoyed participating in all her church’s special activities. One of her favorite pastimes was visiting her neighbors, especially her beloved friend, Annie Hazel Taylor. She continued her interest in people at Carrington Place, visiting with her fellow residents as long as her health allowed.
