She worked at the Oromocto Public Hospital, The Forest Hill Rehab Centre and Department of Health, Medicare Branch. She was an active member of Nashwaaksis Baptist Church and enjoyed time spent with the Coffee House, Bible studies and Helping Hands. A generous and kind person, she crocheted countless prayer shawls, prayer cloths and lapghans for those who were sick or in mourning and preemie hats for the NICU.
