She worked part-time in a number of establishments around town including A la Carte, Fun is First, Gecko Cookies, Robert Ricker Design and Combined Investments.

She is survived by her brother, Don; nieces Debbie (Eric) and Julie; grand-nephews Austin (Jordan), Chase (Destiney) and Cody; great-grand niece Henley and great-grandnephew Cameron; longtime companion Cynthia; best friends Vivian and Sue; and scores of beloved cousins, friends and associates.
