You would often see her hopping on her bicycle going to and from work, shopping, church and errands waiving and saying good morning or good evening to everyone she passed. In her spear time as a seamstress, you could often see her at the sewing machine sewing wedding dresses, special order dresses for clients and making sure her family was will dressed.

In 1968 she decided to take a leap of faith, as she trusts the Good Lord in all she did. She ventured to the United States in hope of finding more opportunities for her family.

She would help organize yearly fundraising bus trips, asked every one for donations for the yearly convention funds to help her growing church. You would often hear her say, when she got push back “This is for God’s house nothing is too small”.

After retiring in 1994, she and her husband decided to return to their beautiful home they expanded and updated in Jamaica. Traveling each year in 6 months interval back and forth to avoid the winter months in the U.S. She would ask for clothing donations and send 5-6 barrels of clothes and food to distribute yearly to those less fortunate in her community in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica up until 2018.
