I began teaching in the children?s Sunday school department at Woods Chapel United Methodist Church and continued after moving to Memorial United Methodist Church.

I have been active in the United Methodist Women for 50 years, having held several offices, including coordinating bereavement meals. After retiring from State Auto Insurance Company, I delivered Mobile Meals through Greer Community Ministries for several years. Now, I support them through my contributions and participate in the annual walk each May.

Currently I assist in the care of my sister who resides at Roger Huntington Nursing Center. During the trying times and caring for a disabled person, my faith gives me the help and strength I need.

Following the loss of my husband, Joe, my faith in God pulled me through. I also receive inspiration from having attended church all my life, having joined the church when I was 11 years old.

Especially meaningful to me is the Thursday morning prayer group. We meet at the church each week at 9:30 and anyone is welcome.

The Lord has given me a full life and has allowed me to be an active part in the life of my grandson, Jay. I have been able to see him play on the church basketball team and grow and learn to love Christ. ?

In 2001, printed in the Memorial United Methodist Church newsletter when asked to tell about her faith in Christ: ?I serve Christ in my life by doing for other people. I began teaching in the children?s Sunday school department at Woods Chapel United Methodist Church and continued after moving to Memorial United Methodist Church. I have been active in the United Methodist Women for 50 years, having held several offices, including coordinating bereavement meals.

After retiring from State Auto Insurance Company, I delivered Mobile Meals through Greer Community Ministries for several years. Now, I support them through my contributions and participate in the annual walk each May. Currently I assist in the care of my sister who resides at Roger Huntington Nursing Center. During the trying times and caring for a disabled person, my faith gives me the help and strength I need.

Following the loss of my husband, Joe, my faith in God pulled me through. I also receive inspiration from having attended church all my life, having joined the church when I was 11 years old.

Especially meaningful to me is the Thursday morning prayer group. We meet at the church each week at 9:30 and anyone is welcome.

The Lord has given me a full life and has allowed me to be an active part in the life of my grandson, Jay. I have been able to see him play on the church basketball team and grow and learn to love Christ. ?
