A son, David Stanley was born in 1949 and all moved to Hapeville, Georgia to continue the family furniture business that lasted for over 60 years. She was the quintessential homemaker and support arm of her husband and 2 sons.

She loved to babysit and have them visit in her home in Hapeville for over 50 years. She spent the past many months at Westbury Medical Care Home in Jackson, GA.
