Billie's first job was Secretary to the Huntsville State Prison Warden. She worked several places, including Shell Oil, as a keypunch operator. She was also Secretary at First United Methodist Church in Conroe. She went on to work and retire from Conroe Independent School District. In later years she lovingly volunteered at Conroe Regional Hospital.

Billie played a key maternal role to her grandchildren, Billy and Sidney. She deeply loved all of her family. In their retirement years, she and her husband enjoyed traveling around the USA in their motor home. Also, both Billie and her husband were passionately involved with Boy Scouts of America, and with their support and guidance, their son Shane became an Eagle Scout. Billie had a fondness for beautiful things and generously shared them with her loved ones. In later years, she enjoyed relaxing in front of the television playing computer games. She learned to sew at an early age and passed her love of sewing onto her two daughters.
