She accepted Christ as her personal savior and attended church in Richmond, Virginia. She was an active member of her church, South Columbia Baptist Church in Columbia, MD, until her health failed. She loved the Lord and loved serving the Lord by working in the children’s ministry, leading bible study groups and was a part of the Sunday School class for senior women.
