She maintained an immaculate home and kept her children in accordance with the highest of standards. She was a lifetime active member of Willis Creek A.M.E. Zion Church, in Grays Creek. She raised her children in church and instilled Christian values in them. Her faith was strong and she knew God’s word well. In fact, her daily conversations were grounded in scripture.
