She was a graduate of Moundsville High School. She spent many years as an office manager and as a reservation agent for Southwest Airlines.

Her courage, sense of humor, positive attitude, and enthusiasm for joining her family in all activities in which they participated will forever be admired by her children and grandchildren.
