She began working at the Jackson County “old folks” Home in Hurley, providing care and assistance to the elderly residents. After becoming a widow in 1967 she was prompted to become a welder at Ingalls shipyard, taking on a trade that at that time was primarily done by men, to provide for her 4 children.
