She and her late husband, Hoyt Vinson Braswell Sr., ran Hoyts' Market for approximately 25 years. She worked for many years as an election precinct worker. A Christian woman, Mrs. Braswell was a longtime member of Vineville Baptist Church and the Joy Sunday School Class. She worked at the church nursery and the preschool for 30 years. She raised numerous children, not including her own. It was a common occurrence to have former children from the church to approach her saying they were thankful for all she did for them growing up. Her many hobbies included doing needle work, gardening, working with flowers, putting together puzzles, traveling, and spending time with her family. She was predeceased by her son, Hoyt Vinson Braswell, Jr.
