She loved to sew and crochet, and over the years she made thousands of hats, scarves, and
mittens for needy people in the area.
She was also a prayer warrior. When time and poor health made it difficult for her to sew or
crochet, she often said, “I may not be able to do much anymore, but I can pray.” She was
always happy to lift others up, and to ask God to meet their needs according to His will.
Throughout all of her health issues, she always maintained a great sense of humor, and we will
always remember her witty banter, friendly smile, and her loving heart.
