She and her husband Charlie lived their dream in Orange Beach, AL and Elberta, AL. Living on the water was their dream and they enjoyed the tidal creek, watching the fish jump and the dolphins swim by.
A very loving mother and wife, she often opened her heart and home to many family members and friends.
