She was an accomplished musician as well as an active leader in the 4-H Program and the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Her interest in genealogy led to her membership in the Huguenot Society and the UDC. She co-authored two books: A History of the Moultrie-Colquitt County Library and Colquitt County Confederate Soldiers. At her death, it was revealed that she had bequeathed the proceeds of the sale of her land and home to the library for the purpose of building a genealogy library in Moultrie.
