She was a prayer warrior, Bible teacher, choir member and encourager to all who knew her. One of her greatest joys was serving as a Pre-K and Kindergarten teacher for 25 years.
Her life "patterned" after Christ is a beautiful legacy for all of us to follow. She loved spending time with the ladies of Temple Baptist Church to study God’s word.
