She was member of a highly distinguished Russell County, KY family, and the sister of Sue Stivers of Columbia, KY, and Elizabeth Richards of Russell County, KY. She served her beloved church, Jones Chapel United Methodist Church, Danielsville, GA, in a variety of roles for decades. She shared her beautiful voice and love of music as head of the choir. She taught her Sunday school class that faith in God teaches us humility, grace, hope and love are the pillars of our spiritual life. Her seventh and eighth grade science students found out about her love of butterflies and over the years gave her pins to represent them as gifts. At her funeral, there were enough of them in the collection that every person left with a butterfly pin.
