She loved the Lord and enjoyed serving as a Sunday School and Vacation Bible School teacher.

She was co-owner of Doss Farms in Cullman, Alabama, along with her husband, Jack, and oldest son, Morrow. She especially loved attending horse shows with her family and watching new baby colts grow up in the farm’s pastures.
