After she retired, she and her husband took many trips around the USA and Canada and traveled to South Korea when her daughter and family were living there.

These include the Smithfield Woman?s Club, Johnston County Genealogical Society, Contact Telephone Ministry, and United Daughters of the Confederacy. She was a charter member of the Smith-Bryan Daughters of the American Revolution. She has been a member of the Centenary Methodist Church since 1947 and was member of the Sadie Spiers Circle there.
