Pinky attended C&MA Churches every place that she lived. Most of her life was in Girard. She was a member of the Girard Alliance Church where she served faithfully in many capacities. As a teen she played a saxophone in the church band. Her Lord was her refuge and strength throughout her life. Many remember her working at Hathaway’s Florist and the School Cafeteria in Lake City. In Punta Gorda, Pinky volunteered many hours at the local hospital where she learned to use a computer. She was kind-hearted and remembered many loved ones with birthday and Christmas cards. For the past 12 years she enjoyed connecting with family and friends on Facebook and ZOOM.
Pinky leaves behind a legacy of fond memories. She was liked by everyone who knew her and adored by those of us who knew her well.
