She was a member of The Reidsville Junior Service League, Womens Garden Club and was a volunteer at Annie Penn Hospital. She was a wonderful cook and taught her two daughters well. She also loved to travel, play golf back in the day, knit and do needlepoint. Up until she fell ill, she still loved to jitterbug with anyone up for a challenge.
