Dear Lord, relying on your promises to us, I turn to you in trust that my mother is with you and that she is enjoying your loving embrace. You alone know how she loved the best she could and how she faithfully endured the struggles that she faced. You know the graces you gave her and you know the grace she was for me and for so many. For all the ways she truly loved the way you loved her, please reward her, Lord. May she enjoy the communion of all her family and friends who are with you.

Lord, I know my mother still loves us who are still here on earth. I ask you that you might listen to her fervent prayers for us. Help me to grow into a new and deeper relationship with my mother now, as I long for the day when we will both meet in your embrace – freed from all that might have hindered our relationship on earth, knowing and understanding everything we did not know or understand on this earth.


The family will hold a private Graveside Service from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm and then will receive friends from 12:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday April 22, 2020 in Fort Hill Memorial Park. This will allow for an hour of open service for all loved ones “Friends” to park at site, walk the pathway & leave prayers to our loving mother in a private setting.

Memorial contributions may be sent to Timberlake Christian Academy where she worked as a school teacher for several years.

Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, Lynchburg, is assisting the family.
