While in Edmonton she and her husband operated a cleaning business. She later followed her passion for sewing and was well known in Edmonton sewing circles. In semi-retirement, she and her husband moved to Red Deer in 2000, where she was with a local ladies clothing store for some time. She also spent some time with a local hotel where she enjoyed meeting people selling tickets at conventions and other events. Words cannot express how much she will be missed by family and friends.
