She moved to Electra, Texas, and graduated from Booker T. Washington High School in Wichita Falls, Texas. She married Isiah McDaniel (preceded her in death) and briefly lived in California.

            Her hobbies were cooking, sewing, fishing, bowling, singing, and dancing. She also loved spending time with her grandkids. She was a very good card player and loved to play cards and talk noise. She also loved to travel with her niece, Venitia Adams. They went on a cruise to Jamaica, bust trips with the YMCA Seniors, and many card parties with friends in Dallas, Texas, Shreveport, Louisiana, and Jackson, Mississippi.
