She worked for over 20 years at Long Mountain Grocery then continued her working career at CVS up until her retirement. She was a fun, loving person. She loved being around people and everyone loved her. She always had a positive attitude even throughout her courageous battle with cancer. She loved to go to the mountains or the beach. She especially loved to ride roller coasters and laughed the whole time. She supported her children, grandchildren, their spouses, and their significant others every step of the way. Even when she was sick, she would watch their events online. She never left their side.
