Odel was the Catering Manager for the Village Green Hotel for many years and later managed the kitchen at Spallumcheen Golf Club. She was an excellent cook and loved catering weddings, banquets and parties. For years she was a member of the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Ladies Auxiliary as well as a life member of the Lumby & District Wildlife Club.
