She founded and was the first president of Steele Creek Residents Association and started the Land Use Committee to monitor rezonings in the community. In 1994 she started the Steele Creek Historical and Genealogy Society, which is still meeting. She was Editor of the Society's Gleanings newsletter for 19 years. She has served as president of Steele Creek Elementary and Kennedy Junior High PTAs. She also wrote a history of Central Steele Creek Presbyterian Church in 1980.

She wrote the Steele Creek History Quiz, which is available on this web site.
