She served in Japan as a single missionary with the Northern Baptists from 1900-1910, and then married a Southern Baptist missionary named Ernest Mills and worked with him in Fukuoka for a few years and then many years in Nagasaki until her death in 1933. She started Maizuru Kindergarten in Fukuoka in 1913, and it still exists today.
