Living by example, she loved God with all her heart, mind, and soul. She was a devoted member of the Lynn Haven United Methodist Church in Florida for many years. Her passion was raising her family with integrity and giving honor to Christ in all things. We rejoice knowing she's in heaven, in God's presence, and will forever cherish our fond memories of her. She was full of love and will truly be missed.
