She volunteered for Community Friendship in Vermont, encouraged her children to be service-oriented, knitted, sewed, and made Macrame hangings.

She was also an artist and avid traveler, but had called Hendersonville, TN her home for the past 20 years. She loved animals and enjoyed exhibiting her artwork locally as well as teaching painting to others. Most recently she enjoyed holding painting lessons at her retirement community, Park Place, in Hendersonville, TN.
