Baptist Church, Monrovia. She worked tirelessly
for the Lord through many Providence Church
positions, including service as President of
the Women's Department, Sunday School Teacher,
Member of Dorcas Circle, and other roles too
numerous to mention. She was a leader as well
in the Baptist Compact, as Secretary of the
Baptist Convention and as an international church
ambassador to North and South America, the Caribbean,
and other nations. Among her many Baptist Compact
