She retired from Union Switch and Signal in 2002 and was a caregiver to her parents until their deaths; and to her uncle, Bill Miller and her aunt, Doris Miller until their deaths. She was an active member of East Side Baptist Church where, for many years she taught in the special ministries Sunday School class and she played the piano. She was very proud to be a part of East Side because her father, Jack Quattlebaum helped start the church.
