After retiring, she and Leon enjoyed making day trips to various places in Arkansas and making yearly trips to Alaska to see the granddaughters. She also enjoyed designing and sewing beautiful quilts and spending time with friends who were quilt makers and fellow China painters. She was a member of the Black Rock Church of Christ.
