Just a few moments in her presence and you knew she was special. She had a unique calling that spanned generations. She was a communicator – with the most difficult audiences of all – little children and seasoned ministers. She was a respected builder of Sunday Schools – from room design and “center of interest” tables to art projects and Bible lessons. She believed the old song, “Everybody ought to go to Sunday School!” and made it true by creating Sunday School spaces and places that everyone wanted to be. She earned her nickname well – “The Sunday School Lady!”
She loved God. She loved people. She loved her family. . . both those tied to her by biology and blood – and those whose hearts God had knit with hers in the times of their lives. She was much loved and loved much. We are grateful to have known her . . . to have called her sister . . . aunt . . . grandmother . . . friend.
