Chesterlyn loved working on family genealogy, building on the work begun by her father Chester Looper and his cousins Ernest Allred and Spurgeon Looper, maintaining legends and records dating back to the early 1600's. She was a member of The Daughters of the American Revolution and various genealogical and historical organizations.

She was a graduate of the Class of 1942, York High School, Jamestown, TN; attended Ward-Belmont, Nashville; Fairmont-Casements, Ormond Beach, FL and University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN.

Until her health prevented it, she delighted in the yearly reunions with her family cousins in Overton County; her high school class, in Jamestown; the annual July luncheons with Columbus friends, and attending the church in Columbus, where she invited Christ into her life, Chesterlyn was an avid reader, Vols football and basketball fan and loved Bible study. She missed her church family and the good Bible teaching when she was no longer able to attend, God blessed her with a loving family and wonderful neighbors and friends.
