She was a 1968 graduate of Union High School, where she met and later married her high school sweetheart, Mike Bass. She was a member of Mt. Gilead Baptist Church, where she served in numerous leadership roles. She retired from Sampson County Schools to be full-time “Nana” to her grandson Cole. She enjoyed spending time with her family and close friends, especially at the beach. However, her most treasured activity was watching her grandson, Cole, playing ball or fishing or farming, or whatever Cole was doing.
