Novella’s life took her to many places. First off Knoxville, TN where she became a beautician and worked for several years. In Knoxville she eventually met and married Louis Wynn. Together they started Economy Sign Company and ultimately moved the company to Nashville, TN expanding into a very successful business. In due course, they sold the business and enjoyed many years of oceanside semi-retirement in Daytona, Florida. The couple eventually returned to Tennessee, dividing their time between Nashville and East Tennessee where they spent many active years enjoying family and friends.
