She was active in the sewing and quilting community. Also a horse lover, she participated in Horse shows and local Saddle Clubs in her younger years. A citizen of the Muscogee Creek Nation, a federally recognized tribe, she was proud of her heritage and enjoyed designing and creating regalia for herself and family while participating in or attending local pow-wows. Ms. Bridges was a direct descendant of the late, Alexander McGillivray, who served as Chief of The Creek Tribe in 1790.
