She graduated from Harrells Christian Academy and earned degrees at Peace College, Mount Olive College and North Carolina State University.  She was a former Human Resources Director.   She was very involved with her children, who were the loves of her life. Whether it be pertaining to school, activities or sports, she was their biggest fan.
