For many years she was youth leader, sang in the choir, and was a member of the U.M.W. Her greatest joy in life was leading her 6 children to Christ as well as many other young people that God placed in her path, many of whom visited her regularly. She loved blue grass music, crocheting, and gardening. Her greatest love was her husband, Donald. They shared many wonderful adventures throughout the years and her last moments were spent with him as she passed peacefully from this life.
