After her mother’s passing in 1999 she returned to the work world as a librarian for the City of Lakeland Public Library while continuing to care for her aging father. After her father’s passing she retired and moved to Crawfordville GA in 2010. Although retired she continued her commitment to public service volunteering for several organizations in the community, writing grants that brought in much needed funds, and serving on the City Council for the last four years.
