Family gatherings were greatly treasured, and she especially looked forward to Sunday lunches in Lake Village, AR, which were usually followed by a lively domino game called Train. Other hobbies included gardening, like her mother and husband, but her favorite hobby was traveling. Especially notable were the many cruises she took with her family. She was a member of a scrapbooking club called the Paper Dolls where she was affectionately called Baby Doll. She also enjoyed membership in the Red Hat Society and spent 26 years as a Louisiana Cotton Museum board member.

She began a 45 year banking career June 24, 1968 and retired December 31, 2013. Her employment included Bank of Dixie, Louisiana Delta Bank and Delta Bank, all located in the same building in Lake Providence.
