The family moved to Lovington, N. M. in 1962 where she continued nursing for a local physician and later became a surgical nurse supervisor of Lea General Hospital until 1982. They moved back to Corsicana and she worked for PEDIA at Navarro County Health Department with Pearl Reynolds and other nursing staff until she retired in 2005 due to health reasons. She worked as a dedicated nurse for over 30 years. She was also a very talented seamstress and was noted in her work. She was a lady of many talents; she also enjoyed oil painting as a hobby.
