She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother (“Nanny”). She loved the Lord above all. She and Rex became members of Ormsby Heights Baptist Church in 1960 where they were faithful servants together for 61 years. She taught Sunday school, training union, VBS, GA’s and Acteen’s and rocked more babies in the nursery than we can count. She loved her family fiercely and joyfully served as a homemaker. She took great pleasure in being in the kitchen cooking and then serving her family. She and Rex loved to raise a garden together. She wanted to feed and wait on anyone who came to her house. She never met a stranger. She had a heart for people who were hurting and alone. She was more precious than rubies. There will not be a day that goes by when we do not miss her. We are grieving but not as ones without hope. Praising the Lord, in grief, for his faithfulness to make all of His promises come true.
