She received her B.A. from Coker College in 1960. She was an elementary school teacher until the age of 47, when she became legally blind due to glaucoma. Despite her blindness, she was able to care for her mother and aunt during their long lives.
She loved all things beautiful and was a poet, a singer, a writer and a gardener. She helped with the rose garden and butterfly garden at Presbyterian Communities until her health prevented it in recent years. She told beautiful stories of her family and life experiences, and never lost her quick wit. She was a faithful Christian, generous and loving, always looking for ways to bless others. She was a dedicated and life long member of Shandon Presbyterian Church in Columbia.
Survivors include nephews Leonard Gandy, Jeffrey Gandy, Jack Allison, Willy Allison and Dargan Allison and many friends who dearly loved her.
