She was an accomplished artist working in many mediums; oil, pastels and ceramics. First Baptist Church in Lockney, Texas was her home church in which she later worked as a secretary. Her other jobs were at the Lockney Gin and Kristi’s in Plainview. Playing bridge was one her favorite games and she was really good at winning.
She and her husband, Jarus, traveled with Campers on Mission working in camps, churches and at Southwestern Seminary in Ft. Worth.
