After college, she worked for Biloxi Public Schools including serving as principal at Howard II Elementary School.

She enjoyed traveling, the New Orleans Saints, and spending time with her friends and family, especially her grandchildren. She will be missed by her extended family at St. Pauls, who knew her for her indomitable spirit, her reassuring smile, and her strong faith in God. It was here that she found so much joy and meaning with the teachers, parents, and above all the children whom she loved so dearly.
