She was a dedicated wife and mother to her family as it grew. Some may remember her from the old G. C. Murphy’s department store at the former Carlisle Plaza Mall. She was a member of the Boiling Springs UMC until her husband’s passing and then became a member at The Meeting House Church on the Walnut Bottom Road, Carlisle. A soprano singer in church choir was a great joy to her. She was an avid reader and one who loved to study the Bible. Always there with a friendly greeting and a warm hug, she was a people person. She enjoyed family gatherings and reunions. Ever worried about how her family, there were constant questions, “how are the kids?” or “is everyone okay?”
