She was born on Oct. 16, 1953 in Rowan County to the late William Ward and Minnie Ophelia Barneycastle Ferebee. She was raised in Davie County and graduated from Davie High School and Salisbury Business College. She was employed by Ingersoll-Rand and was a full-time homemaker. She had lived in Italy and England before moving back to Pennsylvania, Virginia and then to Greensboro.

She enjoyed arranging flowers, watching the birds, decorating her homes, and entertaining family and friends. She was an excellent cook. She especially loved her Greensboro prayer group that she joined later in life. The group members loved her, gave her comfort, and visited her faithfully.

She was also preceded in death by her infant sister, Carol Jean.
