She was well known for her beautiful flower gardens, and she was always ready to share her knowledge of flowers.  She spent her younger years as a homemaker, and later worked at Mobil Chemical, where she retired after 35 years of service.

She is survived by her son, David Calhoun, and his wife Shirley; her grandchildren Bill (Holly) Calhoun and Emily (Rob) Mitchell; and her nine great-grandchildren, who were very special in her life- Jed, Olivia, Ryland, Nathan, Molly, Jack, Aubrey, Elyza and Elsie. She is also survived by her brothers Chuck Walker and Steve (Sue) Walker, and several nieces and nephews.
