"Lita" as she was known by, graduated from Roswell High School and still had many friends from those days. In her early years she worked for Dunn and Bradstreet but later became an entrepreneur and had two ceramic shops, an auction and later was heavily involved in antiques. She had several antique malls and an antique auction. This was her love for 30 years. She retired in December of 2020.
Lita loved southern gospel music with her whole heart and attended concerts all over. She never minded riding for hours to see her favorite groups. She had a giving spirit and found ways to support these groups and the Southern Gospel Music Association (SGMA) by selling albums, CDs and memorabilia. Lita and Vickie organized the first Dr. Jerry Goff Memorial benefit concert for the SGMA. Lita helped raise thousands of dollars for this cause.
Lita was in a CB club back in the 70’s and her club was asked to be in “Smokey and the Bandit” movie. She was in the convoy and always thought that was very special.
