Our beloved mother loved the word of God, she would share tidbits of what she had learned from her favorite pastor/teacher on TV, Dr. Charles Stanley. The focus was mainly for us to be like Jesus, loving, compassionate, patient, humble, all that our Savior, our future and hope represents. One of her favorite Bible scriptures that she had displayed in her home in several areas was Psalm 23:1 The Lord is my Shepherd; I have all that I need. 2 He lets me rest in green meadows; He leads me beside peaceful streams. 3 He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to His name. 4 Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and Your staff protect and comfort me. 5 You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings. 6 Surely Your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.

Funeral service will begin at 2:00p.m. Thursday, February 18, 2021 conducted by a beloved friend, Pastor Teena Houston of First Church of God, Corpus Christi, TX at Charlie Marshall Funeral Home, Rockport, TX. Burial will follow at San Ignacio Cemetery in Ingleside, TX

Mother we will miss all your loving ways, your wonderful laughter, we will miss YOU! We will remember your last profound words “I am a Christian.” To our Lord Jesus Christ be all honor and glory!
