She was a tireless and skillful volunteer: for Navy Relief, helping young military families; with the Crittenden County girls track team and with the Cornerstone Foundation, her son's missionary hospital-based outreach in Honduras. She was a talented artist, avid researcher and undaunted lover of the Lord, her family, her friends and her country.
