She taught Sunday School in the children's department at Calvary Baptist for many years. She and Ralph adopted many Baylor students who attended Calvary, some who remain dear friends today. She was a gracious hostess to many Sunday school parties and youth and college fellowships. Anyone who came to her home knew they would be welcome and well fed. She loved to serve and did so with a humble heart.
