Ms. Postell attended the Calhoun Falls Public School System and at  an early age, she became a member of Glovers A.M.E. Church.

Ms. Postell returned home to Calhoun Falls after her mother’s passing to attend to and assist her father. She did homemaking tasks for a while and textile work at the Calhoun Plant until her health permitted her to carry on.
