She retired from Family Services of Burlington County after 16 years as a cook and mental health aide.

Throughout the years, she developed a special bond and sisterhood in Christ with Alice Edwards, whom she also looked to as a mentor. She also developed a strong relationship with Corrine and Teresa Ackles who became more like family throughout the years. She was also a part of what is known as “The posse” made up of a small group of church couples: Yvonne and Paul Johnson, Sam and Linda Carruth along with Alice and Fred Edwards.
