She was the owner/operator of a local printing company for over 15 years. She enjoyed football, horses, playing bingo, going to casinos and spending time with her family, especially her grandsons.

“If I could tell you things that my mom loved the most, it would be the Redskins, Nokesville and her grandbabies! My mom really enjoyed being a part of the Nokesville community. We’re going to miss her smile, outgoing personality and the love she shared with all of her friends and family,” said daughter Samantha Budd.
