She worked at the University of Texas Permian Basin for 28 years in the accounting office with several duties, but her favorite was being the liaison for special agencies working with veterans, commission for the blind, hearing impaired, etc. which she loved. She was a faithful woman to the Lord and loved many friends and family throughout her life. She was a beautiful person both inside and out. She adored her three girls, her daughter and two granddaughters, it was her life’s work to spoil them endlessly and often. She was proud to speak of them to her friends and family and knew how much they loved and adored her as well.
