She then worked for McGregor & McGregor law firm followed by Waco Printing as a typesetter. She would later join Baylor University in the printing procurement department where she would retire in 2013 after 15 years of service. She loved cooking for her family, celebrating her grandchildren’s accomplishments and spending time with her grandchildren even if it meant sitting in the car and watching them play sports because it was too hot outside.

Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand. Now she flies with Butterflies.
