She was a faithful member of the Church of Christ and had for several years attended services at Western Hills.
A private graveside service will be held for only the immediate family, due to the COVID-19 epidemic. Azle and Lake Worth Funeral Home is handling arrangements. The family requests no flowers, preferring donations to the food bank or your favorite charity instead.
