She was a lifelong member of Vienna Baptist Church where she served in many capacities. She was a Girl Scout leader, helped with 4-H, delivered Meals for One and was a member of Sand Hill CEOS Club. She will be remembered as a strong, fun-loving, caring woman who enjoyed helping others, making crafts, hunting squirrels, fishing, playing cards and spending winters in Florida.
