She was a faithful servant to the London Church of God of Prophecy and loved the Lord with all her heart. Her life was a living example of Ephesians 4:2 “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another with love.” She spent her life as a natural care giver, who was compassionate to those in need. She loved freely and generously and especially loved her role as Granny. Her greatest joy was spending time laughing with family and friends, playing cards, dominos or just being together. Her smile and good-natured spirit will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
