With unconditional love, graceful understanding and powerful prayers she was a beautiful example of a faith-filled Christian woman. She consistently reflected the fruit of the Spirit; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. One of her greatest joys was singing praises to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We all love her very much and will miss her bright, beautiful Spirit…until we meet again.
We will honor her life at a graveside service on April 7th, 2022 at 2:00 PM at Anderson Memorial Gardens. Pastors Gary Massengill and Thomas Vananda will be officiating.
