She was an accomplished musician and songwriter and played guitar, piano, organ and violin. She was a partner in the Belenda Dee Music company. One of her favorite songs she wrote was called 'Roadmap to Heaven.' She was active in her church and outreach ministries including Hopkins Evangelist Ministries. She was a member of First Southern Baptist Church in Gardendale. She loved to garden and had many beautiful flowers though her real passion was fishing.
