She was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on July 7th, 1962. She enjoyed many years in the door to door ministry. When her health limited her abilities, she continued to write letters and make phone calls to share God’s promises with others. She deeply loved her God Jehovah and taught her family to do the same. She was known for saying, “Always do the kind thing.” Her life is a living example of 1Cor. 13:4 “ Love is patient and kind….Love never fails.”
