As a young woman she resided in Idaho for 23 yrs., while working in potato fields, before returning back to Texas in 1985. She served for over 30 yrs. as a Cursillista and a Guadalupana at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. She was a well-respected woman and known by many at her residence of 25+ yrs., Walnut Springs Tower. Everyone knew her as a sweet woman and how she LOVED to clean. Her favorite hobbies were washing clothes and sweeping. She would not tolerate any sort of visible mess around her and would sternly express that she disliked any around her.
