Aunt Beady confessed Christ at an early age and became a member of the Mt. Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, where she served faithfully until her health failed. Aunt Beady loved to travel, plant flowers, go fishing, crochet, and make quilt pieces by hand to name a few things. She especially loved cooking and blessing her family in many ways.
She was ALWAYS ready to fellowship and have a fun-loving good time with her family. She never met a stranger and could spend hours upon hours talking, laughing, and asking questions. She definitely had a LOVE for LIFE and lived it to the fullest.
Following a festive and full life, Our Heavenly Father peacefully called her into eternal rest on July 27, 2020.
