On October 26, 1974 and March 6, 1981 respectively, she welcomed her two beautiful daughters, who were the most important part of her life. Her and her family lived in Caribou, Maine (Aroostook County) for over 30 years, and in that time, she worked for the Caribou Middle School which brought her great joy. She was such a personable soul that every student, teacher, or parent that walked into her office could feel how much she genuinely cared. She loved to decorate cakes, took great pride in watching her two daughters perform at church and at school, she taught cake decorating classes at adult education, and was an avid member of the Caribou Assembly of God, and Caribou PTA.
In 2006 she moved with her husband Bill to Yukon, OK to be with her two daughters. There, she worked for the Yukon Public Schools for eight years and retired in October 2014. She was the nursery coordinator at Christ’s Legacy Church, and was a spiritual woman involved in many church activities and was the true definition of a prayer warrior.

She will be deeply missed by her friends, family, and all who knew her.
