Mott was active in the Bells school district for many years and was one of the founders of the Supporters of Bells Youth, which supports the Bells FFA Chapter to this day. She later opened her own daycare called “The Animal House”. She loved seeing the children she watched as babies and toddlers grow up to raise families of their own. As time went on she retired and decided to enjoy the time with her husband and watch her many grandchildren and great grandchildren grow up. There was not a ballgame, livestock show, wedding, baby shower or birthday party that she missed. She was a member of the Bells United Methodist Church.
