She worked in the professional and business field for a few years before attending college and graduating from Northeastern Oklahoma State University in 1970.

In the Fall of 1991, the family moved to McAlester, and they sold the bookstore.  She went back to work for McAlester Public Schools as a Speech Therapist until she and Clyde retired in June of 1997.
