Tolbert an attorney in Watonga and for Southwest Title and Trust in Oklahoma City.  When Billie and Solon moved to New Orleans, Louisiana she worked for attorney Bienvenue and Culver.

Billie took great joy in singing and playing the harmonica.  She received her first harmonica at age 8 and taught herself to play.  The poetry she wrote would touch your soul.  She was also an accomplished oil painter.  Billie was always ready for an RV trip to the mountains or some far away cemetery to find a lost ancestor.  She was a very proficient genealogy researcher.  Billie was a faithful and loving wife.
