She moved her moved her membership to the First Baptist church of Salem, Ark, where she remained a member until her death....counsellor, advisor, and peacemaker in every community where she lived. She leaves a husband, six children, and a host of friends to mourn their loss. As a servant of God, her humble success speaks more vividly of her acceptance with God now as we draw the curtain of silence o'er her last resting place, we can truthfully say she peacefully rests from her labors and her works do follow.
