She spent a great deal of time with her family camping, fishing, hunting, and enjoying archery. She babysat many younger relatives whom she completely adored. She later married John W. Eddins Jr. Together they had one daughter but was blessed with three step-children, whom she loved very much. They were married for 22 years.

She loved the outdoors, sewing, quilting, ceramics, making porcelain dolls, and many other creative things. She later remarried a kind, and loving man: Bud E.
