She taught in the elementary schools at Carney, Arcadia and Deer Creek, but 24 of her 39 years of teaching were spent at Central School in Guthrie. She delighted in the children, keeping in contact with many of them through the years.
She married Jack Underwood of Edmond and they had a happy 51 years together before his death in 1976.
Her family was small in number and was doubly treasured because of that.
