She retired from Zanesville City Schools and enjoyed playing cards with others and family members. While the Ohio State Buckeyes were a favorite team; her most favorite teams were any team her sons, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were playing on.

She discontinued her formal education to go to work at the SS Kresge 5 &10, to help her older brother Art provide income for a family of 7 children and their mother.
