She began her career at St. Johns in Tulsa, OK in 1956 and remained there until 1966 when she began work at Wadley Regional Medical where she was employed for forty years. She loved to work in Labor and Delivery. The care and love she gave to mothers and their newborn babies for many will be remembered for a lifetime.
