She was the treasurer for the Scotch Closet, her church’s “Home Missions” store, for twenty-three years. She was also a treasurer for the Old Albemarle Presbytery which included forty-one churches. She served on the Kirkwood Retirement Board for many years. In 2011, she was awarded the Outstanding Older Adult Ministries Award of the Presbytery of New Hope.

As a volunteer for over twenty years at the Gov. Charles B. Aycock Birthplace State Historic Site, she taught quill and ink writing to hundreds of 4th and 7th graders. She was President of William Shaw No 38 American Legion Auxiliary, and a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
