She worked for many years for the Missouri Department of Social Services in the Family Support Division. She loved crafting and made Christmas ornaments every year. She also loved playing board and card games with family and friends. She enjoyed traveling and loved going anywhere that she could see the ocean. She was an animal lover and had four cats that she was crazy about. She also went almost every weekend to the movies with her sister, and she called her mother every night without fail.
