She delighted in women's ministries from organizing retreats and teaching Biblical principles to women, to taking part into raise funds for missions. Never able to turn down a challenge, at age 75 she returned to college to improve her life. She wanted to keep up with the changing world so that she could understand the needs of people as she continued to stay involved in prayer ministries and counseling. Her strong will and determination kept her going. She will be remembered in her later years for always being positive and caring about others. McGilley & Hoge Funeral Home (913) 642-3565.
