She retired from the Martinsville Police Department as a School Crossing Guard. She then filled her time with volunteering at the Hospital Auxiliary where she also served on the board.
Not only was she a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, but also, she spent a great deal of her life dedicated to taking care of friends and family. Her love, kindness, and selflessness will be dearly missed by all.
The family regretfully shares that all services will be private.
