She enjoyed caring for others, and worked many years as a State Tested Nursing Assistant for Fairview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. She was also employed by Marysville Releasing Transportation Company, and enjoyed her time there as Transportation Specialist, since it provided her a first look at the new Chrysler vehicles.
