She was born in New Orleans, LA on January 21, 1930 and moved to Texas in the early 1950’s and became a lifelong resident, which she referred to Houston as being “My Home.” She was a long time member of St Cyril’s Catholic Church on Westheimer and was a member and officer for the New Comers of Greater Houston. She worked as a beautician at Clarewood House for 21 yrs and JC Penney’s for 15 yrs from where she retired. She loved to volunteer and her heart had a never ending place for family and friends, those less fortunate, stray animals, art, music, and the Catholic Church.
