Later in life, she and her husband, Paul, moved to beautiful Saint Simons Island, where she enjoyed motorcycle rides and drives with Paul in their bright blue Mustang.

She enjoyed creating beautiful art and coloring intricate pictures of birds and flowers. She was both an excellent cook and baker, making a divine apple pie, cakes, cookies, and donuts. She loved babies just as much as they loved her! She was a member of First Baptist Church of Saint Simons.
