Mrs. Hackett spent a period of time as executive director of the Middle Tennessee March of Dimes organization.

In Hermitage on April 10, 1978 she was united in marriage to Carthage native, Dr. Robert Moore Hackett.

She especially loved spending time with her grandchildren.

She also loved collecting antiques and searching for gifts that her family would cherish.

She and her devoted husband loved to travel and enjoyed seeing and visiting friends who lived all over the country.

While family was her pride and joy, music and crafting were her passions. She loved the hours spent playing the dulcimer, at which she excelled, with her friends. All of her friends who played with her will miss her so much.

She made many contributions to the enjoyment and pleasurers she shared with her family and many friends who loved her so deeply.
