She served the Lord for many years at First Baptist Church of Lehigh Acres co-teaching a 4 year old Sunday school class. She always marveled how she learned more about our wonderful Lord & Savior through preparing for those weekly lessons. She was then led to serve on the stewardship committee and then as financial secretary for the church. This was way out of her comfort zone but God enabled her with abilities for math she never knew. She was currently a  member of Faith Assembly North Ft. Myers.

 

One of her proudest accomplishments was completing her nurses aid training through the American Red Cross. She was definitely trained and had the heart to care for others in there time of need.She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
