Billie went back to school and graduated from CEU with an associate's degree and from Utah State with a bachelor of art degree in 1971 and completed her M.Ed. from BYU in 1979.

From time to time Billie would take off her, "mother hat," or "friend hat" and put on her "counselor hat." Billie loved babies to the degree that her children called her the Baby Lady, no baby was safe from her wanting to talk to, coo at, or ask permission to hold.

She loved Ireland and all things Irish, having spent a month in Ireland, England and Scotland with her cousin, Francine Berrett, doing genealogy a few years ago.
