Mom loved being a pastor’s wife and helping dad take care of the church family, teaching Sunday School, Children's Church and playing piano when needed. She also loved to read her Bible and pray. Her favorite hobbies included singing, sewing, knitting, crocheting, word search, crossword puzzles, cooking and caring for her family. We will always remember her beautiful silver hair and how she could put those spongey, pink rollers in without a mirror. She was a special wife, mom, grandmother, great-grandmother and we will miss her terribly. We all love you mom, kiss Daddy and Jesus for us.
