She had been a member of the Baptist Church 68 years; was a member of Florence church at her death.
She was loved by all who knew her,and was a friend to those who where in need. Even in her last moments she had not a murmer or complaint to make because she knew that her God whom she had been trusting for 68 years had let her live her alloted time and she could say,"thy will be done."

"Softly now the light of day
Fades upon our sight away;
Free from care, from labor free,
Lord we would commune with thee!
Soon for us the light of day
Shall forever pass away;
Then from sin and sorrow free,
Take us Lord to dwell with Thee!"
