She worked at a settlement house in Philadelphia before teaching at the one-room school house at Howe’s Corner, Turner, where her mother before her had both taught and attended school. Later, she spent many years as a beloved elementary school teacher in Farmington and elsewhere.

She is survived by a stepdaughter, Ruth Gibbert of Turner; and several nieces and nephews and their families.
