She provided vacation relief for small insurance offices mostly in Louisiana but occassionally in other states. She did hire/fire for these offices as well. While working for the insurance company she was hit broadside by an uninsured pickup truck that came out of a side road without looking. She did not have on a seat belt at the time and was injured severely. She lost one kidney and was in the hospital for many weeks. After the accident she left the insurance company and went to work for the Trust Dept. of a local bank in Shreveport. She purchased a small farm that had once been a wholesale nursery operation. She lived there until marrying Johnny.

Biography: In October 2006 her second husband had to place here in a nursing home because of her increasingly bad alzheimer's.
