She was a lifelong resident of Washington County, Virginia, and was the Human Resources Manager at Walmart 620 in Bristol, Tennessee until her retirement. She was a loving and giving person with the heart of a true servant of Christ.

As her husband, Doug, said, “We don’t have to fluff her up to make her look good. She already looked good!”
