Ms. Starks created a strong career for herself in nursing. Initially, she was employed at El Centro College as the Administrator of Health Services and went onto many other administrative roles in nursing. Throughout the years she transitioned her nursing career into Agency work and worked in various healthcare settings such as Home Health, Oncology, Bariatrics, ER, and Med Surg. She most recently was a dutiful Rehab nurse at Baylor Rehabilitation Center in Fort Worth.
Her greatest pleasures in life were spending time in the Word, attending church and most of all giving to those in need.
Her life and legacy live on through her quiet example of faithfulness to the Lord and her family.
