She graduated from Anniston High School in 1966. She attended Jacksonville State University where she obtained her Masters degree and a AA in education and later obtained a certification in counseling. She received many awards as an outstanding educator throughout her career. She was a member of Parker Memorial Baptist Church since she was a child, where she taught adult and youth Sunday School and served in various ways throughout her life. After retiring from education, she taught a Bible study for stay at home mothers throughout the county and enjoyed keeping her grandchildren. She enjoyed her free time working with flowers, gardening, cooking, and being with her family and friends. Because of her love for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, she touched lives everywhere she went; from teaching at Noble Street Elementary, Golden Springs Elementary, and Oxford Middle to the stranger in the grocery store line, she always left her mark. She loved indiscriminately. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, and friend and will be greatly missed. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Parker Memorial Baptist Church, the Kiwanis Club of Anniston or the Big Oak Ranch.
