She moved to New York City in the 70’s, where she worked various jobs and became a mother of four. She was known for her good ole’ southern cooking and hospitality and had a sense of humor that could tickle anyone’s funny bone. She was protective of her family and could even be tough when needed.

While in Virginia she continued her spiritual walk at New Life Christian Ministries of Our Lord Jesus Christ. She was employed at Tyson’s Food and also worked at Manor Care Nursing Home.
