After a short stint as a dance instructor, I went to work for the State of Mississippi, where I worked for 26 years and retired from the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office. Being on the “ground floor” with the Legal Division of the Mississippi Gaming Commission, I was afforded a firsthand look at the development of casinos and bingo sites in Mississippi. It was an exciting time to be involved in this industry.

My husband, Darrell, and I live in the Reservoir area of Brandon, MS and are the proud parents of two children and four grandchildren. My hobbies include reading, genealogy, and my grandchildren.

While researching our Irvine ancestor for my DAR application, I became aware of Clan Irwin Association. Our hand-written family tree goes back to John Irvine, who emigrated to the U.S. from Scotland and Ireland. Like many before me, I have stalled looking for his parents.

I am excited about being an officer of Clan Irwin Association and watching how I can help it grow!
