She graduated and became a licensed pratical nurse. She worked at Madison Parish Nursing Home until it closed. Later, she went to work at Home Health. After the business changed hands, she started to work for Madison Parish Hospital, until her retirement. She was active in the political arena.
She met and married Charles Foster, and his kids accepted her as their mother. She was devoted to her mother, Jennie Bynum, and her husband, Charles Foster.
