She worked at Wayne Memorial Hospital as a registered nurse for many years, and during her tenure she served as supervisor of labor and delivery and central supply.

Her independent, kind, and soulful spirit lives on in all the lives that she touched throughout her lifetime , including her family, church, friends, and most recently her Brookdale community (The Pines) which she had grown to love.
