She was a lay speaker, sharing the Word of the LORD. She counseled 1000’s of people over the years, always pointing them to the LORD. She always listened, time after time, even if it was the same issues that were repeated to her, she just listened
She loved and served the LORD with everything inside her, she used the talents she was blessed with. The LORD used her! This is the heritage she has passed onto her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
She was a life long devoted and Godly housewife, and care giver to her husband, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She loved to bake and decorate cakes, in every shape and size you could imagine, she also taught cake decorating. Doing so as a side business, for most of her life.
