She worked as a manager for the Marriott Hotel Chain overseeing their food service. With this job she traveled around the country. She moved back to Riverton in the early 1980’s.

While in high school she was a cheerleader and baton twirler and continued to be able to twirl and do the splits until her passing. She enjoyed trying to teach her nieces the art of twirling and even if they didn’t get it they sure had fun. Her family said that whenever she was asked how she was doing she always replied “fine as frog hair”, that was just her personality along with being a social butterfly who loved her beer. She also loved spending time with her family and friends and was always willing to help anyone in any way she could.

For the last few years she was disabled and lived near her nephew and his family whom took care of her. The family said the Casey Jaure and his wife, Angie were so wonderful taking care of her and that their children, Faith, Gabi, Shyla, and Carmen were just like grandchildren to her.
