Mrs. Purdy was a very nice person I remember when she worked at Goldsmiths whenever we would go into the store she'd always greet us with a smile. We are yet praying for the strength of the family. Frances Fant and family.

Ms Purdy’s homegoing services was beautiful. The love she gave is shown through her family. She raised them well, most of all she raised them to live a honest God fearing life. She loved my brother as if she birth him, that’s love. I will always remember her smile, its making me smile now just thinking of it. To Carlos, Diane, Sam, Jackie, Maude, and Rose, you guys I cant’t help go back to the love that she left with you to pass along to others.
