She was a hairstylist for many years, and later worked as manager of Bobby Floars Real Estate Rentals until her retirement in December 2003 at the age of 76.

After her retirement, she enjoyed her home near her daughter, Brenda and family, where she welcomed her friends and family.

Gerald Fowler, of LaGrange and Kevin Floars and wife, Janet, of Clayton. She is also survived by her grandchildren, who were her joy, Gray Floars and wife, Robin, Taylor Floars, Amanda Fowler, Adam Fowler and wife, Toni, Nicholas, Emily, Christopher and Jacob Floars.

Also, she loved and was loved by many special nieces and nephews, brothers and sisters-in-law and a special sister-in-law, Ruby Wilkins Floars.
