She loved her family dearly and was a strong person able to endure many challenges in life. Quick to tell you what she thought and stuck to her way of doing things. She enjoyed many outdoor activities like fishing, horse riding, and bird watching. Another passion was her love for gardening of all kinds, she had a green thumb and loved caring for plants. Her home was filled with many plants she had for years. She was a Christian and had rededicated her life to Christ at the church where her sister Cheryl attends in the last couple of years. Through the years she worked at different jobs. She trained and became a CNA working for Tullahoma Life Care Center for several years and she helped with elder care for other families. She also worked for Hootens Pest Control until her health kept her from being able to work.
