She was National President of the YWCA as well as Chairman of the Board of the Performing Arts Society, the Community Foundation, Intercultural Cancer Council and Susan B. Komen Foundation. In 1994, she was honored by Washingtonian magazine as "Washingtonian of the Year." And that was all after she retired.
