At 5:50 a.m. April 10, 2014, our sweet mother ran into the arms of her Savior, Jesus. She was an amazing example of God's creativity! Devoted wife to her Bobby, mother to Jan, Teresa and Leisa, the true definition of a grandmother and great-grandmother, a school teacher
, a prayer warrior and a preacher; she loved Jesus with everything within her! And to all who experienced her smile, who sat in her classroom, who was the recipient of her kindness, who sat under her Bible teaching and experienced endless devotion as she gave herself fully to serve anyone in need, know she is celebrating in Heaven today! There are no words to describe the magnitude of the impact she has made. Her legacy will live on!
