She was a Christian woman who loved to read her bible and worship the Lord. She resided at Hardin Home Nursing Home for the last few years and was proud to call it home. She attended regularly scheduled gospel singing and church services. She also loved to play Bingo with the other residents. The thing she enjoyed most was the visits from her family and friends.
