She graduated from Chattanooga Central High School and worked for years as a bank teller in area banks, and retired from Suntrust Bank.  She was a Hixson resident for many years. She worked as a volunteer when the North River Civic Center in Hixson first opened, and received the Volunteer of the Year award from them in 2007 for countless hours of volunteer service.  She was also a decorator.

She was a member of East Ridge Baptist Church in her youth, of First-Centenary United Methodist as an adult, and finally Boynton Baptist Church of Ringgold, Ga.  She was a very giving, generous person in her lifetime, always helping people or matching donors with people in need.  She loved gardening, the Braves, the Vols, gospel music, nature and animals.

She was very loved.  Her warmth, generosity, love for friends and family, and outstanding wit will be sadly missed.

Her remains will be laid to rest at the Lomenacque Cemetery in East Ridge next to her beloved mother, Leona.  

A graveside service will be held Saturday, April 20, at 1 p.m in East. Ridge at Lomenecque Cemetery with Pastor Keith McLeod of Boynton Baptist Church of Ringgold officiating.  A Celebration of Life will be held immediately after at a location to be announced at the service.
