A favorite of many students and staff, she retired in the early 1990s after almost 30 years of service as “the lady with the smile”.

She loved spending time with her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She was a very active member of the Oxford United Methodist Church and a leader in the United Methodist Women. Once coming to Rolla in 2009, she regularly attended the First United Methodist Church, and enjoyed long “walks” in the park pushed by her daughter with “her dog” Max on her lap.
