She worked in banking as a teller for many years and later found her love for teaching young children at Sonshine Learning Center, Southern Pines First Baptist Church.

She is preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, George Gentry Johnson and maternal grandmother, Virginia Coggins Johnson; Her paternal grandfather Paul Tart and paternal grandmother Dora Moore Tart.
