For many years, she was a member of Berean Seventh-day Adventist Church in Panama and later transferred membership to Community Seventh-day Adventist Church in Englewood. She was a woman of great faith who loved the Lord. Her strong faith allowed her to endure even the most difficult of situations with grace, humility, and dignity.
