Devona and her husband, Dale, have been married nearly 45 years and have lived in Laurel Hill since 1976.

Dale — a retired educator and baseball coach — supports his wife’s endeavor.  

"Its something she likes to do and she is good at it," he said.

The couple has two grown children and five grandchildren. Their son and daughter have followed their parents’ example and became educators. Brad Willis, 42, teaches near Dothan, Ala.; Kelli Donofro, 43, teaches in Crestview.

Dale spends his time hunting and fishing in the north county’s rural area that has, as he says, limited recreation options.

"Up here, there is not a lot for ladies to do," he said.
