Following graduation, she received her Certified Nurses Aid License and was gainfully employed until she had children.

Reva returned to being a Certified Nurses Aid once her children were grown. Reva enjoyed caring for the elderly and hearing their stories. Reva's greatest joy in life was being the mother of her three surviving children. She was very active in her children's life and supported their accomplishments.

Reva also enjoyed sewing, crocheting, crafting, puzzles and baking. Reva shared her talents with her daughters and many others.
