There were six distinct members of the family who benefited from the kind and selfless care that she provided for them. Because she was so kind with her assistance, everyone was able to keep living in their own houses right up to the day that they died away. This was made possible by her selflessness. During her time working for the Fulton County Board of Education, she served in a variety of roles, including that of Secretary to the Superintendent of Schools, where she remained for more than 20 years.
