After moving to Monroe County, she worked many years at Shoney’s Restaurant where she was known as “VA” and was a substitute teacher in the public school system in Monroe County. She really enjoyed substituting with the special needs children.
She attended True Vision Pentecostal Church and truly loved southern gospel music. She was known to take a carload of friends to listen to gospel music whenever she had the chance.
Her happiest moments were spent preparing a meal, whether it was for family, friends, or her church family. She was an excellent cook and loved to cook for others. She had a huge heart and enjoyed sharing meals with many, but especially the elderly and shut ins.
