She was a dedicated Registered Nurse for the United States Veterans Affairs, retiring December 1997. She received multiple commendations during her years of service with the U.S Government. She loved the beach, it was the place she was the happiest. Not just any beach but Nags Head NC, where she spent two blissful weeks each summer. She enjoyed reading, lunching with best friend Barbara, taking Prince (beloved Pekinese) for walks, and shopping trips. She was a member of the P. Buckley Moss Society and proudly displayed her many prints. She was a devoted Baptist and enjoyed helping out her fellow members at Bonsack Baptist Church. After the loss of her husband in 2009 she moved to Pennsylvania to be with her daughter.

The family will have a private graveside service on Friday, November 3, 2023 where she will be laid to rest beside Joe at Old Dominion Memorial Gardens, Roanoke, VA. Arrangements are entrusted to Thomas L. Geisel Funeral Home, Chambersburg, PA.
