She left the Army in 1971 and moved to Manassas VA. She was a voracious reader and read thousands of books. She would read anything she could get her hands on. She got cancer in 2021, but recovered by 2023, remaining cancer free for several months, but about two months ago, a one millimeter spot was seen again, and she has two chemo treatments. She was bedridden for five days and then taken to the hospital. She was diagnosed with pneumonia and low red blood cell count. She went to be with her Lord and savior on Wednesday, October 11, 2023.
